Influential articles, reports & books


Related stories

Since approximately half of CIFOR’s research is related to policies, we wish to understand how past research by others has influenced policies towards forests. This will help us design our research priorities and outreach strategies.

To that end, we would be very grateful if you could take a few seconds and send us a list of between one and five articles, reports, or documents you believe had a significant influence on national or international debates concerning policies towards forest.

You do not have to send us a full reference (although that would be nice.) The author(s)’ name and an approximate title is sufficient.
