The Latin America Forest Communicators Network started in Peru in November 2011. A follow up meeting in 2012 expanded and further extended the network to Central America bringing new members from additional countries. There are now around 50 members from both private and public institutions across the region.

Lima, 2014
In 2014, participants from Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Paraguay, Peru and Uruguay met in Lima at a workshop organized by FAO and Universidad Nacional Agraria La Molina, bringing together experts in forest communication from various fields - government ministries, media, universities and NGOs. For more information, read the press release .

The combined network seeks to strengthen the capacities of journalists, public affairs officers and other communicators to build capacity, share success stories and promote learning among its members. The network agreed to share and strengthen common messages, such as the importance of the region to global food security.

The network welcomes new members from any area of forest communications regardless of their qualifications or experience.
