We are inviting contributions to the 27th issue of the Asia-Pacific Agroforestry Newsletter (APANews) on or before 30 September 2005. Let us help you share the relevant programs and projects that you are doing in the areas of agroforestry research, promotion and development, and education and training.
Contributions for agroforestry research may contain results of short- and long-term studies that will update readers on how agroforestry is being developed as a distinct science separate from agriculture and forestry.
Contributions for agroforestry promotion and development may contain information on various extension services aimed at promoting and developing agroforestry among communities. This section helps update readers on how agroforestry is being promoted on the field as a distinct practice.
Contributions for agroforestry education and training, may contain announcements about conferences, symposiums, training opportunities and other news the various efforts being made toward generating more agroforestry professionals and practitioners and providing venues for interpersonal sharing of agroforestry information and networking opportunities. We will also help you announce new information sources and useful websites.
For several years now, APANews has continued to reach out to people from various sectors. Hence, we would like to request interested contributors to adopt the simple, straightforward and popular style in writing the articles instead of that used in journals. By adopting the popular writing style, your articles can help farmers, development agents, researchers, practitioners and other interested individuals in coping with the challenges of promoting and developing agroforestry in their respective countries, and at any level of project or research implementation.
In addition, the FAO and IAF editors would like to accommodate as many articles as possible in every issue. Hence, kindly limit your contributions to 1 000 words, and include good-quality photographs (scanned at 300 dpi) that are properly labeled and referred to in the text. Please don't forget to include complete contact details, especially your e-mail address, should the readers have questions, clarifications or requests for further information.
