Oxford Centre for Tropical Forests

The University of Oxford and the surrounding area are home to people and organisations that offer a vast resource of intellectual capital and practical experience related to tropical forests. Bringing them all together into a single network aims to strengthen both forestry research and practice.

Proforest is a founding member of the Oxford Centre for Tropical Forests (OCTF). Its members include researchers, NGOs, government bodies and private companies involved in cutting-edge tropical forest research. The network enables us to collaborate closely with the academic community, which speeds up the translation of new research findings into useful practice. Through the OCTF and our links with other universities, we also support students during their research for PhD and Masters degrees on related subjects such sustainable oil palm production.
