Teams of Specialists


Teams of Specialists (ToS) are engaged to support the implementation of the Integrated Programme of Work, provide advice, or work on specific projects. Their mandates are decided by COFFI and the EFC, and they report annually to the Working Party on Forest Statistics, Economics and Management. Guidelines for these teams of specialists can be found here.

The overall goal of all the ToS is to contribute to the implementation of the Integrated Programme of Work. Each ToS will support one or more of the main four areas of work, as well as the overall implementation of the Programme. Please see the figure below: 

Below you can find detailed information about each Team of Specialists, including their mandates and current list of members (if available). If your country is interested in appointing a member to one or more ToS, please send your nominations or confirmations for existing members to: [email protected]. For additional information, please do not hesitate to contact the Secretaries to these teams, who are also listed below.
