Welcome to the FOREST CONNECT networking site

Hello! Please use this site to share: news about Small and Medium Forest Enterprises (SMFEs) in your country, tools and tactics that have worked to improve the prospects for SMFEs, recent documents that others might find useful, and upcoming jobs, meetings or training events.

Please do upload photos (especially a profile photo so we can see you) but keep the main photos for small forest enterprise work (no personal or institutional adverts please).

There is a library of useful reports and manuals bottom left that you can access by clicking on the 'more' button at the bottom of that box. If you have any comments or queries please do contact Duncan Macqueen.

Forum or Blogs - which should you use?

Please use the Forum when you want to start a discussion (simply click the '+Start Discussion' link at the bottom of the Forum box). Please ensure that it concerns SMFEs.

Please use the Blogs when you want to announce a new report, tool, job or training opportunity or just want to share your thoughts (simply click the '+ Add a Blog Post' link at the bottom of the Blog Posts box). Blogs allow you to upload a file and preview your message before you post it.
