Scientific Summary No. 51, 2009
The 9th Extension Working Party Symposium of IUFRO 6.06.02 and 6.06.01 on “Evolving Challenges and Changing Expectations for Forestry Extension and Technology Transfer - Meeting needs of people and forests around the globe” took place in Mattawa and Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, 21-26 September 2008. It showed that, in order to be relevant to human needs, the transfer of knowledge should help connect policy interests to public interests. Forestry extension specialists play the role of policy educators, helping people to appreciate policy options and consequences. Extension programs also help to build the capacity for incorporating local knowledge into plans and management actions.
