Trends in forestry education in Southeast Asia and Africa, 1993 to 2002: preliminary results of two surveys uri icon


  • In 2002, FAO, in collaboration with two regional education networks, the Southeast Asian Network for Agro-forestry Education (SEANAFE) and the African Network for Agroforestry Education (ANAFE), initiated regional surveys to establish trends in forestry education and training over the preceding ten years. The surveys were intended as a contribution to the prioritizing of regional forestry education needs. In addition to establishing trends in enrolment and graduation, they also sought to identify changes in the roles of the forester and to relate them to curriculum developments; and to examine the funding situation over the same period. The surveys were carried out by regional networks, with funding from FAO. Participating institutions responded to a questionnaire survey (see Box); the responses were supplemented by interviews and scrutiny of records and reports. The following articles summarize the results
