Excursion of the Northwest German Forester Society in Lin4Carbon study area


Since 1984, there has been a partnership between the state Lower Saxony and the Province Anhui. Their cooperation covers different areas ranging from Agriculture, higher education to economy.  since 2012, there has existed a focus on a stronger forestry dialog within the framework of the Lin2Value project at the forestry faculty of University Goettingen. Therefore, the Chinese forestry colleagues invited the German Forester Society for an excursion in China in September, aiming to deepen exchange in forestry and culture.

Since the beginning of 1990s, the German Development Bank (KfW) has been active in afforestation, reforestation and forest Management projects in that Region. Those projects take palce in cooperation with the Anhui Department of Forestry. This excursion was carried out jointly with Chinese colleagues from the Anhui Forestry Department, Anhui Forester Society and the Anhui Agricultural University.
