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.
