Call for Article - UNASYLVA

The next edition of UNASYLVA, the official journal of FAO, will be published in the second half of the year, around September/October, 2014. FAO intends to produce this issue with a number of collaborators, including the Mountain Partnership; meaning that apart from UNASYLVA being a first-class-peer reviewed journal, it will receive a wide publicity as well!

Submissions deadline: March 30th, 2014

Call for Co-Latin America Regional Representative

Since we are needing help with much work in the Latin America Region, the opportunity to become co-Regional Representative along with Paola Coronado is here. Along with her, this person would be basically acting as the information link between IFSA 7 and the LCs in his/her region, which means that you'd be receiving and managing information constantly.

Submissions deadline: November, 30th, 2013
