Who can attend?

People from a wide range of sectors and all parts of the world are encouraged to take part in the Congress. Whether you are a forest user, work for a government organization, NGO, private company, scientific or professional body, or simply have a personal interest, you are welcome to take part.

Registration fees

Spaces are limited and we are expecting great demand, so take advantage of the Congress’s “early-bird” rates by registering before 7 July 2015. Full registration will give you access to all events during the five days of the Congress, while partial registration is available for people wanting to attend only one, two or three days. Special prices are available to citizens of South Africa and eligible countries (list below*). Reduced rates are also available for students, retirees, and people accompanying participants.

Please note: Fees are fixed in South African rand (ZAR). US dollar (USD) prices are indicative and subject to exchange rates.

Disclaimer: Fees are established and collected by the host country, the Republic of South Africa. FAO does not charge any fees.
