Yes, it is very impressive article which share a lot of commons with my views. I have
involved a little bit on curriculum development for forestry education now. We are trying
to facilitate Chinese professional to develop a new text book which reflect what we have
achieved in the last couples of decades, including community forestry.
Please let me know how we can join our effort.
With best regards!

Subject: [IUFRO Div 9] Revisting forest management curriculum
Dear IUFRO Division 9 members,
I am forwarding herewith an impressive article of Mr. Kanna Kumar, a
development professional of India with a forestry background who has
observed that conventional forestry curriculum needs to be revised so as to
incorporate community based conservation initiatives, particularly because
participatory forest management & rights of local communities are now a
commonly accepted principle worldwide. I shall be happy to know from you if
any of the institutions you are associated with have already done this or
are in the process of doing this, and if not whether you will be able to
facilitate the same.
