Meridian Institute

International Union of Forest Research Organizations Science/Policy Interface Workshop

Related: Environment and Natural Resources

In 2004, Meridian Institute facilitated a three-day synthesis workshop for the Science/Policy Interface Task Force of the International Union of Forest Research Organizations. The workshop took place in Switzerland and involved leading scientists from around the world. Participants in the workshop:

  • synthesized findings from 58 case studies on how to best integrate forest science in policy-making processes
  • identified and refined key messages for improving interactions between the forest research community and both policy makers and society at large
  • developed advice to scientists, research teams, and research institutions to improve and make more effective the partnerships among researchers, policy makers, and society
