– 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) –
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 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.
ICP Forests has entered its 30th anniversary. ICP Forests has under the CLRTAP achieved quite a lot during the past three decades, however, there is still a lot of challenges left. To get more awareness about both the achievements and the challenges I designed a kind of logo. Please, make extensive use of it in various communications, however, if there are other proposals, please, post them here.
