Regional consultations for strengthening global forest education

Description

As part of the Global Forest Education Project, six virtual regional consultations on the topic of forest education took place in February 2021.

The consultations were a critical component of an initiative to strengthen forest education globally, led by FAO, the International Tropical Timber Organization (ITTO) and the International Union of Forest Research Organizations (IUFRO) and is generously funded by the Government of Germany.

The objective of each regional consultation was twofold: 1) to validate the findings of the regional assessment report on forest education, informed by a global survey; and 2) to identify actions that could be taken to strengthen forest-related education in the region.
