Helping Bolivia’s Government with global CFM workshop. 21-27 April 2007

21 - 27 Apr 2007,

The Bolivian Government is sponsoring an international policy dialogue workshop on community forestry, for April 21-27. Bolivia’s Ministry of Rural Development, Agriculture and Environment, and the Government’s Forestry Superintendence, are sponsoring the event with organisations such as CIFOR, FAO, PROMAB (Programa Manejo de Bosques de la Amazonia Boliviana), CERES and SNV. During the workshop, the social organizations will contribute to the Bolivian Government in framing policy guidelines on community forestry, one of the key platforms in Bolivia’s new forestry strategy. CIFOR will attend as part of the Rights and Resources Initiative (RRI), helping to mobilize forestry community leaders from Mexico, Guatemala, Nicaragua, Brazil, and Panama to share their experiences with Bolivian counterparts and policymakers.
