Forests in the balance: linking tradition and technology

XXII IUFRO World Congress

8th to 13th August 2005

What was the event?

The theme for the Congress, Forests in the Balance: Linking Tradition and Technology, was jointly developed by the Congress Organising Committee (COC) and Congress Scientific Committee and subsequently signed off by the IUFRO Board:

  • To create an interest amongst not only scientists but also the full range of stakeholders with an interest in forests and process technology
  • To reflect the importance of tradition and technology, including the increasing importance of indigenous knowledge
  • To recognise the role of indigenous peoples, not only as residents but also increasingly as future land managers.
