Profiling Global Forest Watch July 2014
Host: Anthony Williams, GSN Executive Editor
Global Forest Watch (GFW) is a global Watchdog Network that improves transparency and accountability in forest management decisions by increasing the public’s access to information on forestry developments around the world. The underlying principle is that increasingly powerful information technologies make transparency one of our most potent mechanisms for strengthening the incentives for responsible industry practices and building the capacity for sustainable forest management. A moderated discussion with GFW program leaders will share key lessons learned, challenges and future opportunities of these technology-enabled networks.
