Beijing Forestry Society (BFS) was established in 1955 by a group of foresters in Beijing, and it currently consists of over 2800 members. The membership brings together a rich variety of specialists working in diverse forest related fields with the common goals of promoting sustainable forestry and communityÂ development. Among BFSâ€™s members, there are CAS Academicians, senior-titled technicians and many post-graduated researchers, logowho are all currently serving in State Forestry Administration, Chinese Academy of Forestry, Beijing Forestry University, Beijing Municipal Bureau of Parks and Forestry (BMBPF), forestry enterprises and other related institutions. It is an information exchange platform for professionals and practitioners from Beijing, even from China and the world. BFS mainly focuses on forestry related science promotion, environment protecting, capacity building, climate change mitigation, watershed management through various activities. Over the years, we have made full use of our expert resources and geographical advantages to cooperate with IUCN, WWF, UNDP Global Environmental Facility, Deutsche GesellschaftfÃ¼r Technische Zusammenarbeit (GTZ), Forest Trends and other international organizations on over 20 programs related to sustainable forest management, close-to nature forest management, improvement of forestry communitiesâ€™ livelihood, climate change mitigation, forest landscape restoration, forest certification, watershed management and so on. During the cooperation with IUCN in Livelihoods and Landscape Strategy (LLS) project in Miyun Reservoir, as well as with BMBPF in â€œCapability Building of Forest Guards for Beijing Eco-Forestsâ€ project, we successfully introduced in the international leading concepts and techniques such as forest landscape restoration and close-to-nature forest management. These technologies helped improve the forest biodiversity and its landscape productivity in Miyun Reservoir watershed. They also enhanced the self-development ability of local people and their environmental awareness. Until now, we have organized many large-scale domestic and international academic conferences, and launched several large outreach campaigns to facilitate information exchanges and raise public awareness of climate change and biodiversity protection.
