    • CIFOR and China: New opportunities tocontribute The 12th 5 year plan includes commitments to:• Increase scientific research and development;• Developing a "green economy" including reducing carbon dioxideemission per unit of GDP by 17%• Increasing Forest coverage to 21.66 percent and forest stock toincrease by 600 million cubic meters. “Go Global” opportunities for researchSource: FEDRC
    • “Sentinellandscape” withWorld AgroforestryCenter
    • CIFOR and China CIFOR scientists have workedwith Chinese colleagues ontopics related to Chineseforestry since 1995 Over 50 publications related toChinaPhoto: Nick Hogarth

    • A generalized NRM research to impact theory of change We work with partners to identify knowledge gaps that require the support ofan international research effort• Assess the baseline situation – knowledge, actors, interests, coalitions• Determine what needs to change and the obstacles to change• Determine how research can help support change We work with partners to set priorities for knowledge generation• Determine the desired state of society to which the research will ultimately contribute• Determine indicators of progress toward impact (outcomes)• Determine the research products that are needed to produce the outcomes• Plan activities with partners to produce the outputs We implement research with partners and produce knowledge products• Conduct field and lab work and collect data• Analyze data and generate research reports to the scientific community that isvalidated by the peer review process• Produce research products for actors and stakeholders outside the scientificcommunity We disseminate knowledge through different forums to facilitate informeddecision making. More informed decisions or improved practices will lead tobenefits for affected people.
    • China: KnowledgesharingCollaborative partnerships: Working together with Chinesescientists Interacting with them and withforest stakeholders in the field Abundance of existing institutionsin China working on sustainableforestry management fordevelopment
