INVITATION: New Generation Plantations Annual Summit

Cape Town, South Africa - 18 & 19 June

WWF has great pleasure in inviting you to participate in the New Generation Plantations (NGP) 2014 Annual Summit.  The Summit will take place on June 18th and 19th at the Vineyard Hotel ( in Cape Town, and will be co-hosted by WWF and Mondi.  Additional details can be found in the attached Concept Note and Programme.

The NGP Platform was initiated in 2007 as a mechanism for sharing lessons and best practices around responsible forestry plantation management across the world.  More recently, the NGP participants have begun to explore how the principles of responsible plantations management can be shared across multiple land use sectors and their respective value chains in a given landscape, with the aim of securing multiple environmental and social benefits at the landscape scale.

The 2014 NGP Annual Summit will therefore focus on bringing together international and South African representatives from the forestry, agriculture and related land use sectors and value chains, with a view to discuss lessons and best practices around two important challenges: social issues and land use management.  More specifically, the NGP learning platform will seek to learn from these different sectors and value chains, and to improve how we can communicate what we've learnt in a more compelling way.

Please confirm your attendance by completing the attached Registration Form and emailing it to Kathryn Wells at by 15 May 2014.
  Final arrangements will be emailed towards the end of May 2014.

There is no cost for attending the Summit, but please note that travel and accommodation requirements are for your arrangements. A special accommodation rate has been secured for a limited number of beds at the Vineyard Hotel, expiring on 15 May 2014.  Please contact Vuyani Sitshaluza at the Vineyard Hotel ( saying that you are attending the NGP Summit to get this special rate.
