The Standing Committee on Commonwealth Forestry
The Standing Committee on Commonwealth Forestry (SCCF) was established at the Commonwealth Forestry Conference in 1923. Its role is to:
- Provide continuity between one Conference and the next, including close liaison with host countries in their preparations, and follow-up actions;
- Determine the Conference theme and format, invite speakers, commission papers and issue appropriate guidance notes;
- Issue periodic newsletters to keep interested parties throughout the Commonwealth informed of arrangements and relevant activities;
- Take appropriate follow-up action on Commonwealth Conference recommendations.
The SCCF consists of one representative from each independent Commonwealth government - usually the head of the Forest Service or its equivalent. The Commonwealth Forestry Association provides the Secretariat.
