Meridian Institute

First International Dialogue on Forest Certification

Related: Environment and Natural Resources

In collaboration with Yale University’s Global Institute of Sustainable Forestry and The Forest Dialogue, Meridian staff assisted in convening and served as lead facilitator for this 35-person dialogue meeting, which brought together the managers and leading stakeholders of the five most prominent forest certification systems in the world. This first-of-its-kind meeting, held in Geneva, Switzerland, in October 2002, resulted in an improved understanding of the various certification systems and a commitment among participants to continue the dialogue in pursuit of the shared goals and objectives of these systems.
