Forest Policy Day on "Forests and Trees: Serving the People of Africa and
the World" is being organized in Nairobi, Kenya on 25-29 June 2012.
This Regional Congress will provide a unique opportunity to stimulate and
enhance scientific cooperation with our colleagues, forest researchers and

development in Africa. The Congress will highlight research that puts
relevant information in the hands of forest communities, forest managers,
policy makers, the private sector and civil society.
