An international workshop on ‘Community Forestry in Latin America’ will take place in Lima, Peru on Friday, December 5th, 2014 as a parallel event during the 20th Conference of the Parties to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and the Global Landscapes Forum. The workshop is organized by the Governance, Environment & Markets Initiative at Yale University (GEM) with sponsorship from the Climate and Land Use Alliance.
The workshop will convene scholars, policy-makers, practitioners, and stakeholders from a variety of fields and disciplines to examine how a selection of strategies can be used to support, design, and disseminate effective community forestry to multiple global regions. An anticipated outcome of the workshop includes a practitioners manual for strategies for the dissemination of community forestry.
This workshop is intended to be a collaborative, small-group effort. Given that space is limited and that the workshop aims to bring together a diverse audience, interested participants are invited to express their interest in participating by signing-up here in this Google Form by 24 November.
The workshop organizers will review expressions of interest and confirm registration by 1 December 2014, taking into account the objective of ensuring balanced participation.
