In particular, the Congress offers model forest partners the opportunity to showcase how their work in the sustainable management of forest landscapes is interlinked with major development issues of the day including alternative economic development, climate change, indigenous participation and others. The deadline for paper and poster abstracts is December 31, 2008. Don't miss this opportunity!
