SWOT ANALYSIS OF THE MEDITERRANAEN MODEL FOREST NETWORK

 

Strenghts

The MMNF belongs to a bigger Network: the International Network with a good reputation and track record

Some Staff of the MF Secretariat is still committed on a voluntary basis

We are a multidisciplinary and trustworthy Group

Good relations with and support from big institutions (FAO) and governments (such as Canadian Gov.)

Take advantage of the pull of the "Circular Economy“ --- Model Forest = Circular Economy

The diversity between the Model Forest structures and activities constitutes a source of inspiration

It is not reliant on outside sources of funding It is voluntary = strong dedication

The Model Forest concept has never been more relevant to forest policy than it is today

The MF concept has been officially recognized in the European Union's forestry strategy

The Model Forest Associations (already created) proved their own sustainability

 

SUPERVIVENCE STRATEGY (weaknesses+threats)

Search for common points to heighten the NETWORK unit

Each site could commit to produce an annual report and participating in communications/publicity activities (ie, submit articles, share tweets, etc)

Creation of community funds.

Small economic contribution by each Association for the Network functioning.

Build key partnerships beyond FAO

Each site ensures it has an update strategic plan and shares it with MMFNS and IMFNS
