As at the two previous network meetings, the 1983 Forest Sector Project Network Meeting summarized the accomplishments of the Project, both by the staff at IIASA in Laxenburg, Austria, and by the national teams in collaborating countries. Also discussed were options for future effort (particularly for further development of the global forest trade model), data required to be assembled and analyzed, and other Forest Sector Project affairs. A detailed agenda is listed in Appendix A.

The network meeting was attended by 39 participants from 13 of the collaborating countries and from cooperating organizations (Food and Agriculture Organization of United Nations (FAO), United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO), and Jaakko Poyry International Oy). Eight members of IIASA's Forest Sector Project and other units participated. A list of participants is given in Appendix B.

Unlike other network meetings, the meeting was held in Sopron, Hungary, because accommodations were unexpectedly scarce near Vienna. The participants were appreciative of the gracious and generous hospitality of our hosts, the Hungarian Committee for Applied Systems Analysis.

Formal presentations are only part of what happens at any coordinating meeting. Questions and comments during the meeting, conversations at breaks and meals, distribution of papers by those that could not attend, and separate meetings on special topics all contributed to accomplishments. This report attempts to summarize the meeting as a whole.
