Blue Ribbon Commission Releases Report on Forest and Forest Products Research and Development in the 21st Century

NAUFRP Statement:  The recently released report of the US Endowment for Forestry and Communities’ Blue Ribbon Commission on Forest and Forest Products Research and Development in the 21st Century underscores the need to bolster our capacity to solve the problems facing our forests and associated forest products industry.  The Commissioners have done an admirable job of describing the current state of forestry research and development.  Their central message recommending major changes in forest sector R&D resonates very positively with our university-based forest resources programs.  We agree that re-investing in forestry research and innovation would pay multiple dividends, and would welcome a conversation about how to bring the many forest interests together to develop new funding models.
