Globalization, Localization and Tropical Forest Management in the 21st Century

October 22, 2003 - October 23, 2003

Amsterdam, Netherlands
Roeterseiland University

"The congress theme was new markets and partnerships in a globalizing world where rights to forest land and resources are increasingly being devolved to local authorities, communities and forest users. The congress provided a forum for analysis and debate on how tropical forest management evolves in a context where new actors, partnerships and markets arise. Based on the participants’ experiences, the discussions focused on lessons learned, the risks encountered and the approaches, actions and research needed to enhance sustainable and pro-poor forest management."
