Description

Representatives from four major universities (Australian National University, University of British Columbia, Oregon State University, and Yale University) and the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) are actively assessing the need for, and potential structure of, a new International Partnership for Forestry Education (IPFE). Recent meetings at the XII World Forestry Congress helped refine the mission and expand the partnership to include representatives of universities and other institutions with educational missions from across Europe, Africa, South America, and Southeast Asia. Start-up funds from the World Bank have been used to help develop pilot projects directed at improving forestry and natural resources education around the world.
