First IUFRO-FORNESSA Regional Congress
25-29 June 2012, Nairobi, Kenya
CONGRESS REGISTRATION AND INFORMATION
Dear member of the IUFRO network,
Dear friend of IUFRO,
For the first time ever, an IUFRO-FORNESSA Regional Congress & ITTO/AFF 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 organizations in Africa. The overall goal of the Congress is to demonstrate how forest science is impacting on livelihoods, environmental
management 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.
The Congress will take place at the premises of the World Agroforestry Centre (ICRAF), United Nations Avenue, Gigiri, 00100 Nairobi, Kenya. An
overview of the Congress Timetable is posted on the website at http://www.fornis.net/congress/en/homepage, as well as information on the
Congress venue, local logistics, accommodation and the Congress program. All information is regularly updated with the most recent
developments as the Congress is coming closer.
Do not forget to make your registration before 15 May 2012 through the Congress website at http://www.fornis.net/congress/en/homepage and pay
the registration fee as described at http://www.fornis.net/congress/en/registrationfee. Your registration before the deadline will be essential for
arranging local transportation in Nairobi, which can otherwise not be ensured by the local organizers.
The local Congress organizers and IUFRO Board members are looking forward to seeing you at the first IUFRO-FORNESSA Regional Congress in
Africa and will be glad to welcome you in Nairobi.
