Welcome to ICP Forests

– the International Co-operative Programme on Assessment and Monitoring of Air Pollution Effects on Forests operating under the UNECE Convention on Long-range Transboundary Air Pollution (CLRTAP) –

A programme aiming at a comprehensive compilation of information on the condition of forests in Europe and beyond

ICP Forests was launched in 1985 under the Convention on Long-range Transboundary Air Pollution (CLRTAP) of the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) in response to wide public and political concern over extensive forest damage that had been observed in Europe in the beginning of the 1980s. ICP Forests monitors forest condition in Europe at two monitoring intensity levels: The Level I monitoring is based on around 6000 observation plots on a systematic transnational grid of 16 x 16 km throughout Europe and beyond to gain insight into the geographic and temporal variations in forest condition while the Level II intensive monitoring comprises around 500 plots in selected forest ecosystems with the aim to clarify cause-effect relationships. At present 42 countries participate in ICP Forests.

UNECE Air Convention reports available online

Dear colleagues,

having attended the 3rd Joint Session of the Working Group on Effects (WGE) and the Steering Body to EMEP from 11-15 September 2017 at Geneva, I want to point to the fact that all basic documents for that meeting are available at the UNECE website. Of relevance for the ICP Forests community is especially the "2017 joint progress report on policy-relevant scientific findings" (ECE/EB.AIR/GE.1/2017/3-ECE/EB.AIR/WG.12017/3) and the "Progress report by the Programme Coordinating Centre of the International Cooperative Programme on Assessment and Monitoring of Air Pollution Effects on Forests" (ECE/EB.AIR/GE.1/2017/11-ECE/EB.AIR/WG.1/2017/4). These and all other documents can be found under:
