New survey to assess state of forest education worldwide

FAO, the International Tropical Timber Organization (ITTO) and the International Union of Forest Research Organizations (IUFRO) today launched a comprehensive survey on forest education across the world.
The survey covers education related to forests, trees outside forests and other wooded land delivered through forestry and forest science programmes, as well as broader programmes such as natural resource management and environmental sciences.
Consisting of three questionnaires, the survey targets three groups of key stakeholders: a wide range of employers of forest graduates; teachers and administrators at all levels of education; and students currently enrolled in or recently graduated from forest-related programmes in universities, colleges and technical and vocational institutions.
