Sardinia is the 2018 Forest Island

ForestThis year EFI granted the European Forest Island 2018 award to Sardinia. On 19 March 2018, EFI Director Marc Palahí presented the award to Francesco Pigliaru, the president of the autonomous region of Sardinia. In his speech Palahí pointed out that with the award EFI is not only recognising the efforts made by the region to support sustainable forest management but encourages Sardinia to take the lead in the future in the Mediterranean region in placing forests and forestry at the heart of sustainable development.


More than the 50% of the island is currently covered by forests. This figure makes of Sardinia the italian region with the largest forest heritage.

EFI grants the title of European Forest City each year to the city which hosts its Annual Conference. The 2018 EFI Annual Conference will be held in Alghero, Sardinia in September 2018.
