ANNOUNCEMENT (draft) 14 February 1995

Making Forest Policy Work

The Oxford Forestry Institute, with the IIED and SGS Forestry, will run a 
new four week course from 3-28 July entitled Making Forest Policy Work. The 
focus of the course will be to confront the central issues of forest policy 
and practice in an increasingly challenging global environment, building on 
the experience and expertise of key players, analysts and opinion makers in 
forest policy both in the United Kingdom and worldwide.

The course is divided into two modules: Week 1, a week of one day seminars 
which can be attended either for one day or for the whole series; and Weeks 
2-4 comprising three weeks of coursework of more specialist interest.

Seminars in Week 1 include: `Forests in sustainable development: political 
and practical challenges'; `Economic challenges and practical responses'; 
`Sustainable forests, sustainable forestry'; `Working with people'; and 
`Envisioning the future'. Weeks 2-4 focus on processes and actions which 
help develop and implement forest policy solutions. Discussions will centre 
on understanding the policy process, and economic and programme assessment 
practices relevant to forestry. The problems encountered will be assessed 
by means of a major case study analysis.
