According to FAO, a changing society changes its demands on forests. Although global interests in forest are translated into international forest or environmental issues (treaties on biodiversity, certification of forest management or products, etc.) changes of demands at the national level are different.
Forestry education in different countries is undergoing changes according to the national settings. While in some countries the number of students is growing or at least stable, in others the number of students is declining. As a consequence, funding for forestry education might decline and forestry education institutes are at risk in some countries.
Join us on the Forestry Roundtable for the Month of February as we host Alex Onatunji, the IFSA coordinator, Joint IUFRO-IFSA Task Force on Forest Education and a ERASMUS MEDFOR Scholar. Alex will be helping us understand the CURRENT STATE OF FORSTRY EDUCATION IN AFRICA: A YOUTH PERSPECTIVE.
Additionally, Alex will be sharing his story on how he got into forestry and the opportunities forestry students and graduates in Africa can maximize.
