Lin4Carbon in Chinese TV News

The implementation of the Lin4Carbon project raises a lot of attention, not only on the side of local and provincial forest authorities in China.

The high relevance of the project is due to the well defined project goals that are in line with actual challenges of forest management and forest policy formulation in China.

The importance of project activities of our multicultural project team working on site in Shitai are also recognized by the local media. A television crew of Shitai News recently accompanied our team during an excursion conducted in context of a workshop that was organized by Lin4Carbon. Such workshops and further sustainable measures of capacity building for academia and implementers are an integrative part of the project.
