Global Leaflet presents highlights of policy, research, technical cooperation, development, and conservation activities in which the Forest Service is involved worldwide. Its purpose is to demonstrate the breadth and importance of international collaboration on natural resource management issues and to share information within the Forest Service and with our partners in the United States and around the world.

International Programs (IP) is dedicated to applying the wealth of skills within the Forest Service to foster sustainable forest management globally. We encourage linking the agency's researchers, foresters, wildlife biologists, hydrologists, policymakers, and disaster specialists, with partners overseas to work on assignments in the areas of technical cooperation, policy assistance, and disaster coordination. Our focus is on key natural resource problems and issues in countries with significant forest resources and important forest-related trade with the United States. International cooperation results in improved sustainable natural resource practices in partner countries, develops the skills of Forest Service personnel, and brings back knowledge and innovative technologies to the United States.
