Rio+20: Offering platform for sharing knowledge on forestry

Rio+20 (20/06/2012) – Anne M Larson, Senior Scientist, CIFOR Peru tells Pavilion TV that some of the best things to come out of conferences such as Rio+20 is the opportunity to network, share ideas and to better understand the work taking place at a national level across the world.

She says while she does not have high hopes for the negotiations, it offers a good chance to bring international recognition to the issues of environment and climate change surrounding forestry and she says she has been encouraged by the good discussions she has been involved in at the conference.
