 Apart from its mission to conduct critical forestry research that combines biological, physical, economic and social factors, CIFOR is committed to participation in a host of policy dialogues and global initiatives aimed at bringing about more sustainable use of the world’s tropical forests. This work, part of a programme on Policies, Technologies and Global Changes, has given CIFOR a very high profile in intergovernmental circles and enhanced its stature as the pre-eminent institution for forest research.
