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 650 IUFRO-J members represent 36 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 FFPRI, which was established in 1905 as a forest experiment center of the Forestry Service, Ministry of Agriculture and Commerce, Government of Japan. FFPRI has contributed to sustainable development for people through research on forest, forestry and forest products. Since 1970, in accordance with its mission of leading forest research for Japan's future, FFPRI has been cooperating with IUFRO. The activity with IUFRO Headquarters led to the formal establishment of the IUFRO-J Committee in 1976. Since then, the IUFRO-J secretariat has been formally located at FFPRI. Historically, the chair of IUFRO-J has been the president of FFPRI to meet the needs of IUFRO-J activity. Japanese representatives of the IUFRO international council are chosen and confirmed at the IUFRO-J annual meeting. In order to give IUFRO-J members up-to-date information regarding international forest issues, the IUFRO-J secretariat has published IUFRO-J NEWS three times a year since 1977.
