TRAINING: International Forestry Resources and Institutions (IFRI) Research Program: Fall 2010

In Fall 2010, the nine-week IFRI training course will be offered at the University of Michigan’s School of Natural Resources and Environment, with Arun Agrawal and Lauren Persha. Arun Agrawal is Associate Research Dean and Professor at University of Michigan’s School of Natural Resources and Environment, and Lauren Persha is the IFRI Postdoctoral Fellow. The course explores theoretical and methodological approaches for exploring human-environment interactions. It focuses on community level forest management, and the interaction of institutional, socioeconomic and ecological factors that influence sustainability. It also specifically exposes students to the IFRI research program and provides training in data collection methods, including participatory techniques, individual and group interviews, and forest measurement. Students apply their field research training in a forest community in Southern Michigan. Trainees also gain first hand exposure to the unique IFRI database and learn how to enter data and use queries to create datasets. [more information]
