In order to contribute to documenting and analysing the experiences and lessons generated through these initiatives, the European Tropical Forest Research Network (ETFRN), together with Tropenbos International and GIZ, will publish a special issue of ETFRN News on ”Enhancing forest related governance for development: Recent country experiences and what they teach us”. The publication will focus on the incentives, drivers and enabling factors for states and the private sector to improve forest governance and on the approaches and processes taken to improve forest governance. The Newsletter is scheduled for publication in May 2012.
This publication may be an excellent opportunity to showcase your work and to contribute to the discussion on how to improve forest governance. We are therefore kindly inviting colleagues and organizations involved in the theme to contribute a short article (maximum 3,000 words) on their work and experiences.
If you are interested to contribute, please contact before 12 November Guido Broekhoven ([email protected]) with the topic and a short outline (app. 200 words) of your article. Based on the number and nature of the proposed articles, an editorial committee will select the ones that are most suitable for publication in this issue of ETFRN News. We will provide a short instruction and general guidance on the process to authors once you have been selected to write a full article.
