Annual Report 2000
The year 2000 was a milestone for Fern as it marked our fifth year of existence. Since our beginning in 1995 Fern has more than doubled in size and has become the leading organisation at the EU-level dealing with aid and trade issues in relation to forests. Our impact has been felt in the aid and trade debates as well as on issues such as forest certification and the intergovernmental discussions on forests. Our profile has grown dramatically in the last two years and we feel justly proud of our achievements.
Annual Report 1999
1999 has been a year of change and drama at the European Union. For the first time in its history the Parliament sacked the Commission on charges of corruption and nepotism, and a new Commission was installed. The summer elections also put a new Parliament in place.
