"International Forestry Resources & Institutions (IFRI) Research on Forest Social Ecological Systems for Actionable Science" Venture meeting
This is a closed meeting for a funded synthesis group of visiting scholars.
The International Forestry Resources and Institutes (IFRI) network, founded by Elinor Ostrom, is a unique effort involving social and natural scientists working on the use, management, and governance of tropical forests by local communities. IFRI researchers have collected original field data on social and ecological variables from 243 tropical forest sites in East Africa, Latin America, and south Asia. They draw on this unique database to synthesize information on biodiversity, carbon, and livelihood outcomes in each site, and the factors associated with variations in these outcomes.
