On September 12-16, 2011, MegaFlorestais, in collaboration with the U.S. Forest Service International Programs and Rights and Resources Initiative (RRI), hosted the second Next Generation of Forest Agency Leaders seminar. It gathered 18 forest leaders from 8 forest ministries (Brazil, Canada, China, DRC, Indonesia, Peru, Russia, and the United States), 7 respected scholars and practitioners from the U.S., Nepal and China, and representatives of the co-organizers.

The purpose of this seminar was to help develop the next generation of public forest agency leaders, and to prepare them to deal with the increasingly complex challenges on forest landscape management. By engaging these various forestry actors in frank and open small-group discussions, the seminar helped paved the way for stronger collaboration among these new leaders and to go forth with a better understanding of global issues.
