An Extract




„In 2013, as CIFOR turned 20, we reflected on our many achievements. We are proud to have brought the value of forests to the world’s attention, helped strengthen forest policy globally, established relationships with local and international partners, and built the largest body of global forestry research. „ Peter Holmgren CIFOR Director General






CIFOR came to life in 1993 with just a handful of staff in offices hosted by Indonesia’s Ministry of Forestry. Twenty years later, CIFOR has over 250 staff at nine locations around the globe. Projects are underway in over 30 countries in collaboration with more than 100 partners, showing that CIFOR is truly a“ « center without walls.“ M. Hosny El Lakany Chair, Board of Trustees
