Celebrating ILWS Authors

ILWS is hosting a special morning tea on Tuesday 27 February to launch six books by ILWS authors.  The books that are edited by our members include chapters written by other ILWS members and show the diversity of our research expertise.  Of special note is the book “Community Forestry in Nepal”, edited by Rik Thwaites, Robert Fisher and Mohan Poudel.  It is the culmination of 10 years work and includes research which resulted in four PhDs.
