From: Secretariat ISFFP 2010 [mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org]
It is our great pleasure to invite you to participate in the inaugural
International Symposium on Forestry and Forest Products (ISFFP). ISFFP 2010
is being organized in conjunction with the Forest Research Institute
Malaysia's (FRIM) 25th anniversary this year. The main objective is to
discuss and disseminate the latest R&D findings that address the often
competing and challenging needs of both the forestry sector and forest
Malaysia is committed to combating climate change, as reflected by the
Honourable Prime Minister's pledge at the recently concluded COP 15 under
the United Nations Framework on Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) to
voluntarily reduce by up to 40% of its carbon emission in terms of emission
intensity based on Gross Domestic Product by 2020 from the 2005 level. The
Symposium is therefore aptly themed, "Addressing global concerns and
changing societal needs".
There will be discussions on issues pertaining to;
. climate change,
. forest ecology,
. forest plantations,
. applied biotechnology in forestry,
. green technology,
. medicinal products from plant material,
. improved processing, and
. utilisation of wood and non-wood products.
ISFFP 2010 therefore, aims to bring together all the stakeholders to reflect
on these issues, in the hope of striking a balance between addressing global
concerns and fulfilling societal needs for sustainable development.
Those interested in presenting a paper or poster should submit an abstract
to the secretariat at isffp(a)frim.gov.my by 1 June 2010.
