Benwood Workshop in Beijing

From 26th to 28th April 2010, an „International workshop on Short Rotation Forestry Potential in Energy Utilization and Carbon Trade“ was held at Xijiao Hotel in Beijing.  It was hosted by the Beijing Forestry University, one of the Benwood project partners with the support of Beijing Forestry Carbon Administration and Beijing Municipal Bureau of Landscape and Forestry.  The workshop provided an opportunity for a fruitful exchange between scientists, project developers and investors from the main affected target countries: China, India, Brazil and Africa as a continent.
