Forest working group
The Forest group is one of the working groups set up by MAB France to exchange information and develop joint projects. Meeting annually, it brings together coordinators and forest managers, both public and private, from the six Biosphere reserves of the French mainland which incorporate forests: Cévennes, Fango, Luberon-Lure, Mont Ventoux, Fontainebleau and Gâtinais, and Vosges du Nord.
Its purpose is to facilitate communication and ensure that each partner has access to the necessary guidance, as well as to plan future actions and review the results of actions already undertaken, in order to achieve optimal management of forest lands.
It also aims to promote the effective implementation of the agreement between the MAB France committee and the general management of the National Forests Office (NFO, or ONF in French). The forest Biosphere reserves have also signed an agreement with the NFO throughout their territories.
