For a quarter of a century, CIFOR scientists have been contributing to global discussions and research on forest-related issues.

To celebrate the work of our scientists since 1993, we have asked our alumni to reflect on their time at CIFOR and their research. Over the coming year, we will be bringing you a series of interviews with former CIFOR scientists to highlight the importance of CIFOR's past and current research.

The themes below represent some of CIFOR's major research areas over the years. Here you will find our CIFOR alumni interviews, and a wealth of information and resources on CIFOR's contribution to these research areas.

Explore the pages below and join us in celebrating 25 years of CIFOR research!
