Forests: The 8th Roundtable

19 Jun 2012,

The Center for International Forestry Research (CIFOR) will hold a conference on the eve of the Rio+20 Summit to inform 400-500 environmental negotiators, global and national leaders, policy makers and other leading stakeholders on critical role forests play a global green economy. The event will discuss new research findings – and remaining knowledge gaps — and their policy implications for integrating forests into the solutions to four key challenges to progress toward a green economy, namely energy, food and income, water, and climate.
