N. 9

2006


The Young Forester Award is designed to support the professional development of the recipient through the provision of a short-term work placement in a country other than their own and consists of a designated placement combined with a bursary of between £1000 and £1500 to cover a stay of between three- and six-months (depending on the placement selected) with established and renowned forestry organisations, in order to meet their professional interest. The hosts might be major timber companies, research organisations or NGOs but they all share the desire to support the development of the next generation of foresters. In 2006 two Awards will be made available; one to a forester from a developing country, the other will be open to all applicants.More information can be obtained from http://www.cfa-international.org

Small and medium forest enterprise development for poverty reduction: opportunities and challenges in globalizing markets

To reflect on the critical issues facing the development of small and medium sized forest enterprises in the tropics and on how to best support them for the benefit of the rural poor, representatives of the private sector, governmental and non-governmental organizations, development and donor agencies and research centers, will gather in Turrialba, Costa Rica from 23 to 25 May 2006.
