Global Issues in Governing Natural Resources: Next Generation Leadership of Public Forest Agencies
This meeting is co-organized by RRI, the Canadian Forest Service, the University of British Columbia and MegaFlorestais, in collaboration with the Government of British Columbia and the United States Forest Service.
The event is designed to better prepare the next generation of public forest agency leaders to lead in a more complex social, political, environmental and market context. It will engage mid-career professionals from forest ministries and related public agencies in cutting-edge analysis and information for a deeper understanding of global transitions in forest tenure and governance, and markets. The objective is to strengthen contributions of forest agencies to addressing land rights, poverty alleviation, governance, conservation and climate change challenges in their countries. Finally the seminar aims to promote improved information sharing and networks among these future leaders through frank and open dialogue in a small group setting where problems and solutions can be discussed openly.
