III) Thematic Networking
IUFRO’s thematic networking
strengthens collaboration among scientists and forest experts across countries and continents, and thus also enhances the role of science in shaping forest policy and management.
IUFRO-SPDC’s networking projects are especially targeted at forest science and the forest science community in developing countries and are committed to adding value to research with a view to maximizing its output and impact on policy and on the ground forest management. This is achieved by synthesizing globally available scientific information, knowledge and expertise, publication of synthesis reports and policy briefs, as well as through knowledge-sharing workshops.
