Subject: IUFRO Joint International Conference - RG 3.08, RG 9.03, WP 9.05.06
I am delighted to share with you the first announcement and call for submissions for our IUFRO International Conference "Between Tradition and Increasing Challenges: Future Development of Small-scale and Community Forestry in Times of Global Change". Some of you honor us by participating in the Scientific Committee, so I am sure we will have a very interesting meeting!
The conference will provide a unique opportunity to bring together researchers from all over the world to share evidence-based knowledge on small-scale and community forestry issues in Latin America, including the ecological, institutional and anthropogenic factors influencing the management and evolution of forests and forest landscapes. As traditional knowledge plays a substantial role in both small-scale and community forest ownership models, the integration of a historical dimension will provide an additional source of information in order to interpret and understand the challenges and constraints related to global change.
Please find attached the First Announcement as well as two pictures: the Paranaense Rainforest in Misiones, Argentina, and a workshop of mbya guarani craftspeople on valorization of the cultural value inherent to their production.
I look forward to promoting forest history and traditional knowledge (as well as community forestry) at this meeting!
All the best,

It will take stock of the latest scientific advancements in the fields of forest-related policy analyses, as well as wider forest-related governance studies from fields, such as, e.g. political science, sociology, anthropology, human geography, regional development, economics, psychology, environment, forest history, legal studies, as well as livelihood and tenure analyses. It strives to include theoretical, methodological and full-blown empirical contributions from around the globe in topical sessions.
Kindly distribute this call widely and prepare YOUR session and paper proposals !!
Looking forward to your and your colleagues' submissions.
