Forests & Livelihoods: Assessment, Research, and Engagement
FLARE (Forests & Livelihoods: Assessment, Research, and Engagement) aims to advance the state of knowledge regarding forest-based livelihoods. By bringing together representatives of key stakeholders – donor organizations, environmental and social NGOs, development agencies, and research organizations – we will build on and leverage existing expertise and efforts to share and advance cutting edge knowledge and conversations on forest-based livelihoods. Ultimately, the goals of FLARE are to generate usable information and methodologies for collecting it; develop, promote and share the findings of the group; and implement such tools, knowledge, and methods to improve monitoring efforts and, ultimately, the efficacy of forest-dependent livelihood interventions around the world.
The abstract submission period is now closed. We will notify submitters of decisions by 16. Registration opens May 17. More information can be found on the meeting page. The 5th Annual FLARE meeting will be held at the University of Michigan (Ann Arbor, Michigan), August 23-25, 2019!
