Knowledge for a sustainable world

Between November 2007 and early February 2008, NRI was delighted to welcome eight trainees from the People's Republic of China, who attended courses in Conservation Ecology, Tools for Sustainability and Tropical Forest Ecology and Management. All the trainees work in aspects of conservation and forestry for the Chinese government and were selected from eight different provinces across China. During their time at NRI they had the opportunity to revise some basic aspects of their subjects as well as learn about more recent advances and case studies.
