Scoping Dialogue on Forests and Poverty Reduction
TFD convened a "scoping" Dialogue to discuss numerous questions regarding forests and poverty reduction with a group of stakeholders. The topics of discussion included the forest sector's role in poverty reduction, how can timber, pulp and paper reduce poverty, and how can poor communities contribute to sustainable forestry. The Dialogue attempted to identify areas of potential collaboration amongst diverse stakeholders to increase forestry's potential to create poverty reduction initiatives.
