September Newsletter Focuses on Policy

Because the next issue of the IMFNS newsletter will appear at the end of September 2000, a short time before the Yamanashi Workshop in Japan, the theme   of the workshop "Model Forests and Feedback to Land Use Policy" will be shared by our Newsletter. We invite all model forests to send articles to the IMFNS on their efforts to include policy makers in their decision- making process, or on how their work has had impact on land use policy in their respective areas. We are interested in hearing about these results, whether they are positive or negative. All model forests could benefit from learning about your experience. The deadline for articles is August 18, 2000.
