Forest Europe Uzmanlar Toplantısı-4/5 Haziran 2024

Forest Europe haylidir takip ettiğim bir süreç. Uzmanlar toplantısı Bakanlar Konferansından sonraki en önemli karar alma organı. Aslında burada alınan kararlar Bakanların onayına sunuluyor.

En son 2008 yılında Oslo‘da düzenlenen Uzmanlar Toplantısına Orman Genel Müdürlüğü adına aktılmıştım.

2024 yılı 1/2 Kasım tarihlerinde düzenlenecek 9. Bakanlar Konferansı öncesi 4-5 Haziran 2024 tarihlerinde Almanya’da “Uzmanlar- Expert Level Meeting” düzenlenecek.

Bundan sonrasına gelen mail üzerinden devam etmek daha uygun sanki.

Dear signatories and observers of the FOREST EUROPE process, dear colleagues,

We have the pleasure to invite you to our second Expert Level Meeting (ELM) in 2024 in Freising, near Munich. We would like to thank the Bavarian State Institute of Forestry (LWF) and the Technical University Munich for their generous hospitality.

We decided together with the General Coordinating Committee (GCC) to organize again a physical-only meeting as the primary focus of this second ELM in 2024 is to finalize and approve the Bonn Ministerial documents. This would be more difficult with an online or a hybrid meeting.

May we kindly remind you of the written procedure, which we started with mail of 19 February 2024. We hope you will thereby consider the discussions and agreements reached during our first ELM in Bonn (9/10 January 2024).

The Liaison Unit Bonn, with the guidance of the GCC, will aim to resolve outstanding issues raised during the written procedure before sending you version 3 of the documents by mid May 2024. With this way forward, we are leaving hopefully only a few outstanding issues to be discussed and solved in Freising. It is essential to note that no substantive changes can be made after June 5, 2024, once the ELM approves the Ministerial documents, as we will need to send the final documents on time to all Ministers responsible for forestry in the FOREST EUROPE process.

The ELM will start on Tuesday, 4th June 2024, at 9 am and conclude on Wednesday, 5th June, at lunchtime. Following the ELM, LWF extends an invitation to an interesting excursion on forest adaptation to climate change in order to increase their resilience, ensuring that you will reach Munich airport around 5.30 latest by 6 pm on 5th June to reach your evening flights (or trains from Munich central station). We recommend combining your participation at the ELM with a visit to Munich, the charming capital of Bavaria. You can find suitable hotel room suggestions here or explore any online platform.

As a special invitation, we would like to invite you for dinner on 4th June 2024, at the oldest still active brewery in the world, Weihenstephan (for further information visit Especially for this evening, it might be more convenient that you book your hotel in Freising, as we will need the time to finalise our negotiations on the documents and as the trip by train to Munich downtown takes approx. 30 min from Freising train station.

More information on hotel contingents reserved for you in Freising will be given in the annex. We have also attached a short description on how to reach Freising with public transport.

Please register for the ELM before 10th May 2024, using this registration link:

We kindly invite our signatories from countries in transition to contact before 30th April 2024, to inquire about potential reimbursement of travel costs.

Please find attached the annotated draft agenda. We will send you all other meeting documents including the version 3 of the Ministerial documents latest by 10 May 2024. The ELM will be conducted in English only.

It might be also helpful for your preparation to receive enclosed the final minutes of our last ELM in Bonn (9/10 January 2024). Thanks to UNECE and Switzerland for their suggestions for improvement.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us

We appreciate your continuous support, and we are looking forward to meeting you in Freising in June
