CIFOR forests blog

Through our blog we cover key scientific and policy-setting events on forests, biodiversity and climate change. We bring the blog to our front page for live postings during key events.


Get the gist on major issues affecting forests and climate change, REDD+, rights and tenure, and policy on our YouTube channel. We upload short interviews and longer panel discussions with internationally recognised scientists.


CIFOR's Photostream is a growing collection of images of tropical forests and the people who rely on them, with additional catalogues on peatland, community forestry, timber and nontimber forest harvests and the biodiversity forests harbour.


Our scientists present emerging findings and early research results at international conferences and workshops.  We post their presentations on our SlideShare page when we can.


Get late-breaking news about our events and forest-related issues delivered to your mobile device or smartphone, or by visiting our Twitter page.
