Forest Economics and Policy Program (FEPP)
FEPP’s mission is to conduct research and analysis on forestry and environmental sustainability issues— with a focus on timber supply, wood energy, and global environmental challenges related to forests—to help policymakers understand the underlying economics critical to the development and implementation of forest policy in the United States.
FEPP experts have served on various advisory councils, including the Presidential Task Force on the Future of Public Forestry, the U.S. Forest Service’s 2nd Committee of Scientists; the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change; the Environmental Literacy Council; the National Academies of Sciences Board of Agriculture and Natural Resources; the Board of the Sustainable Forest Initiative; and the EPA Scientific Advisory Board on Biogenic Energy.
FEPP is directed by RFF Senior Fellow Roger Sedjo. FEPP’s Advisory Committee helps bridge discussions among the public, private, and nonprofit sectors, and aids in guiding FEPP’s work.
