International Society of Tropical Foresters - Yale Student Chapter

Yale ISTF Student Group 2014

Yale's Student Chapter of the International Society of Tropical Foresters (ISTF) was first organized in 1989, as part of a network of natural resource professionals concerned with tropical resource management. ISTF provides a forum for students with interests and experiences in linking natural resource conservation and management with economic develo

pment. Members participate in a range of social, educational, and professional activities that promote the sharing of experiences and knowledge related to resource management in developing countries. Each year, ISTF organizes a two-day conference on an emerging topic in the tropics. Conferences in recent years have brought together representatives of governments, universities, and environmental and development organizations to discuss:

  • Tropical Forests Under a Changing Climate: Linking Impacts, Mitigation, and Adaptation
  • Reduced Emissions from Degradation and Deforestation
  • Payment for Environmental Services
  • Illegal Logging and Certification
  • People in Parks
  • Himalayan conservation and development
  • Ecotourism
