The regional project “Maximize the production of goods and services of Mediterranean forest ecosystems in the context of global changes” (2012-2016) is financed by the French Global Environment Facility together with the German Cooperation (GIZ), the French Ministry of Agriculture, Agrifood, and Forestry, and the European Union.

Project activities are organized into five components and are coordinated by FAO’s Committee on Mediterranean Forestry Questions – Silva Mediterranea and the Plan Bleu (UNEP).

The goal of the project is to encourage actors to manage and/or restore Mediterranean forests with a sustainable perspective for environmental goods and services provided by forests in a context of global changes.
