Conference Description:

The World Teak Conference is an offshoot of the commendable efforts initiated by Thailand on massive planting of teak throughout the country to commemorate the 84th birthday celebrations of the beloved King of Thailand. Thailand has been executing a nationwide project to plant 8.4 million saplings of teak distributed in villages throughout the country with peoplesí participation. This effort is laudable and serves as a model for other countries across the globe on account of its social and environmental implications. TEAKNET established by FAO of the United Nations to promote teak globally, took on this spirit and decided to support the international conference in Thailand in appreciation of the highly relevant efforts the country has made. In this conference, TEAKNET in association with the other organizing partners, attempts to examine the multiple aspects of teak cultivation and management in the context of sustainable development with social, ecological and economical implications.

The major objective of the programme is to examine the multiple aspects of teak cultivation and management in the context of sustainable development with social, ecological and economic implications.

The major sponsors of the workshop will be the Plant Genetic Conservation Project under the Royal Initiative of Her Royal Highness Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhon, FAO of the United Nations and TEAKNET. The conference is being jointly co- hosted by a total of 31 agencies.
