we learned, my colleague and I, about the forest week a bit late and the deadline for presentations seems to have passed. we wanted to check whether there are still any empty spots for oral presentations concerning a community-oriented fire prevention approach in Lebanon and improvement of outplanting practices for better survival rates in reforestation projects on degraded areas in Lebanon.

Appreciate your reply to maya.nehme@gmail.com or mnehme@lri-lb.org
