What is and why is it important?
The IUFRO-Japan (IUFRO-J) Committee is an organization launched in 1970 by the Forestry and Forest Products Research Institute (FFPRI) to promote global and domestic partnerships in forest-related research in cooperation with the International Union of Forest Research Organization (IUFRO). The IUFRO-J secretariat keeps members up to date on IUFRO activities. The 600 IUFRO-J members represent 31 Japanese organizations and individuals who wish to further global contributions to the role of research in sustaining forests and people.
IUFRO-J has a history with the FFPRI, which was established in 1905 as a forest experiment unit of the Forest Bureau under the Japanese Ministry of Agriculture and Commerce. The FFPRI has contributed to sustainable development for people by conducting research on forests, forestry, and forest products. Ever since 1970, in accordance with its mission of conducting leading forest research for Japan’s future, the FFPRI has been cooperating with IUFRO. Cooperation with IUFRO headquarters led to the formal establishment of the IUFRO-J committee in 1976. From then on, the IUFRO-J secretariat has been formally located at the FFPRI. Historically, the chairperson of IUFRO-J has been the president of the FFPRI to meet the needs of IUFRO-J activities. Japanese representatives of the IUFRO international council are chosen and confirmed at the IUFRO-J annual meeting. To provide IUFRO-J members with up-to-date information regarding international forest issues, the IUFRO-J secretariat has published IUFRO-J NEWS three times a year since 1977. (Since 2018, it has been published twice a year.)
