Exploring Opportunities for Forest Research Collaboration in Mongolia
Two organizations carry out most research related to forests and trees in Mongolia: the Institute of Geoecology of the Mongolian Academy of Sciences, and the Department of Forestry of the Faculty of Biology at the National University of Mongolia. They both have a strong interest in international collaboration and the development of joint research projects and activities and this is why they decided to become members of IUFRO in 2006. As a third member, the Green Gobi Center N.G.O. joined IUFRO in spring 2007.
Possible fields of collaboration outlined by the Mongolian research institutions are: joint research projects; curriculum development of the Forestry Department; guidance on high-quality scientific literature and publications that could be translated into Mongolian language for use as study material; guest professors and lecturers, as well as exchanges of Master’s and PhD students; scientists’ training and support for participation in IUFRO meetings and training courses.
