WEBINAR: Opportunities and challenges for the global forest sector
To celebrate International Day of Forests on Sunday 21 March, the IFA/AFG is delighted to host the following webinar:
: 9.00 am, Friday 19 March 2021
Opportunities and challenges for the global forest sector
Geraint Richards, Head Forester, Duchy of Cornwall, UK
Geraint Richards has been the Head Forester for the Duchy of Cornwall for 25 years. As well as managing the Duchy’s trees, woodlands and forests, Geraint is involved with a wide range of initiatives and organisations, both nationally and internationally, many of which are associated with His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales. Geraint will explore the many opportunities and challenges that he experiences as a professional forester, using the Duchy’s own woodlands as a case study but applying these to the global forestry community.
The world has just experienced one of the most extraordinary and traumatic periods in recent history, and the international forestry community has been affected by the events of the last year in a myriad of ways. It will take a long time to come to grips with the world we now live in, but as a community we must begin piecing together the challenges and opportunities facing our forests and the people who rely on them. Before we celebrate International Day of Forests on the 21st of March 2021, we will pause to consider what it all means, and how we can bring together the global forestry community in an uncertain world.
