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.
