Call for abstracts for the World Forestry Congress
The XIV World Forestry Congress will be a key occasion for the world’s foresters and forest supporters to gather, to share their expertise and experience, and to project a new vision for the future of forests and forestry. We’d like you to help define that vision.
We are inviting abstracts on the central theme of the Congress, “Forests and People: Investing in a Sustainable Future”, and on relevant topics that also align with any of the six Congress sub-themes:
·Forests for socio-economic development and food security
· Building resilience with forests
· Integrating forests and other land uses
· Encouraging product innovation and sustainable trade
· Monitoring forests for better decision-making·Improving governance by building capacity
More detailed information on each sub-theme can be found here.
We invite abstracts for voluntary papers, posters and – for the first time – video presentations, which will allow you to actively demonstrate your work in the field – for example through interviews with beneficiaries of projects and initiatives, or with practical demonstrations.
Please make sure you submit your abstract before the deadline for submission, 15 December 2014.
