The Background to the International Poplar Commission and the 22nd Session are detailed in the FIRST and SECOND ANNOUNCEMENTS. Argentina and Chile are ideal locations to demonstrate the wide range of applications of Poplars and Willows in meeting the social, environmental and economic dimensions of sustainable forestry and rural development.


The meeting will be suitable for policy makers, forest managers, forest scientists and academics, from public and private institutions, landowners, indigenous peoples and students with an interest in growing and using Poplars and Willows for social, environmental and economic benefits.
