Bonn, Germany
Nov 13, 2019

What role does forest policy play in Japan? Why did the Japanese government implement a forest environment transfer tax scheme in 2019? Who is affected by this new approach to forest management? And how are the reactions from different Japanese prefectures?

On Wednesday, 13 November 2019, 12am, Professor Ryo Kohsaka from Nagoya University will introduce interested participants to the new Japanese national forest environment transfer tax and management system. The presentation will take place at European Forest Institute’s Bonn Office.

Ryo Kohsaka has studied, worked and taught in Japan, Hungary, Great Britain, Germany, and Canada and is currently a professor at Graduate School of Environmental Studies, Nagoya University.
