A Caribbean Foresters Collaborative Network for Understanding Regional Forest Dynamics
DescriptionWe presented a new information-sharing platform at the 16th Caribbean Foresters Meeting in August 2013 to facilitate and promote collaboration among Caribbean foresters. The platform can be accessed through the Caribbean Foresters website where information and data on forest research sites can be shared. There is a special focus on identifying potential collaborations and sharing data from permanent forest-sample plots in the Caribbean region. This short communication from the Information-Sharing Working Group that convened at the August 2013 meeting presents the first agreement for information and data among Caribbean Foresters based on the draft that was circulated among all meeting participants and presented at the meeting.
