Next Generation of Forest Agency Leaders



The event was co-organized by the Rights & Resources Initiative, the National Forestry Commission of Mexico, & MegaFlorestais. Objectives of the seminar included: • Better prepare the next generation of public forest agency senior leaders to lead in a more complex social, political, environmental and market context. • Engage senior executives from forest ministries and related public agencies in cutting-edge analysis and information for a deeper understanding of global transitions in forest tenure and governance, and markets. • Promote improved information sharing and networks among these agency leaders through frank and open dialogue in a small group setting where problems and solutions can be discussed openly. • Strengthen contributions of forest agencies to addressing land rights, poverty alleviation, governance, conservation and climate change challenges in their countries. This event was an activity of the MegaFlorestais network. Participation was invitation only. For more information, please visit the event page here.
