The IUFRO-Japan (IUFRO-J) Committee is an organization launched by the Forestry and Forest Products Research Institute (FFPRI) to promote global and domestic partnerships in forest-related research in cooperation with IUFRO. FFPRI originally established in 1905 as a forest experiment center of the Forestry Service, Ministry of Agriculture and Commerce, Government of Japan, has contributed to science, technology, policies, and promoting international partnerships through research that uses the rich and diverse forests in an environmentally sound way. FFPRI has been cooperating with IUFRO since its establishment. The activity with IUFRO Headquarters led to the formal establishment of the IUFRO-J Committee in 1976 and since then FFPRI has maintained the secretariat of IUFRO-J. The 600 IUFRO-J members represent 35 Japanese organizations and individuals who wish to further global contributions to the role of research in sustaining forests and people. In order to give IUFRO-J members up-to-date information regarding international forest issues, the IUFRO-J secretariat has published IUFRO-J NEWS three times a year since 1977. IUFRO-J Committee and IUFRO-J News can serve as an effective model also for other countries and institutions for promoting research collaboration and partnership with IUFRO.
