Global Forestry (GLOFOR) is a two-year English language world-class Erasmus Mundus MSc programme that prepares graduates to deal with forestry’s tremendous contemporary challenges and potentials in dealing with the problems of biodiversity protection, climate change mitigation and adaptation, and the development of a circular bio-economy.


Deforestation and forest degradation account for 10-15% of the world’s greenhouse gas emission, thus contributing to the global loss of biodiversity and undermining the live-hoods of millions of people who depend on forests.


These processes predominantly take place in low-income areas, especially in the Global South; for this reason, a global transformation towards an equitable and green economy will not be possible unless forests in medium and low-income areas come under sustainable forms of utilization and protection. In the meanwhile, forest cover is growing in most of the advanced economies representing an opportunity for the development of a bio-economy based on closer to nature forest management criteria.
