Here’s a short extract from the Q&A interview:
Q: What inspired the T20Q project?
A: At its heart, the inspiration is to get everyone with an interest in forestry and landscapes to contribute towards research and policy agendas. This will ensure that research undertaken — at whatever level — is relevant and policy development reflects perceived priorities. To use “buzz words”, this is referred to as a participatory process that supports evidence-based policymaking.
T20Q – Top 20 Questions for Forestry and Landscapes – is a project run by multiple partners. The website is hosted by the Sylva Foundation at: http://forestryevidence.com/t20q/
