There's a gap between knowledge and practice when it comes to adopting scientific recommendations for sustainably managing forests. So what can forestry scientists do to foster the adoption of good, research-based practices and policies? How can we effectively spread our research and get the people we're trying to reach to take it on board? Robert Nasi, CIFOR scientist and Director of the CGIAR Research Program on Forests, Trees and Agroforestry, gave this presentation on these questions as his keynote speech at the opening session of the inaugral International Conference of Indonesian Forestry Researchers (INAFOR), held from 5 - 7 December 2011 in Bogor, Indonesia. INAFOR aims to provide a discussion and knowledge-sharing forum for Indonesia's forestry scientists from governmental agencies or the private sector, and is planned as a preparatory forum for Indonesia's increased involvement in IUFRO (the International Union of Forest Research Organisations).
