Abstract
"This report details the results of that survey and the proceedings of the Discussion Forum on Information Services in the Asia-Pacific held at Bogor, Indonesia, from 30 October to 1 November 1996. The list of perceived needs generated by the survey guided the deliberations of the Forum. Participants identified priority goals, action plans for their achievement and responsible agents/agencies, expected time frames and likely costs. The priority goals agreed upon by the group were: To demonstrate the value of information in contributing to a country's development. To improve the ability of Information Services Unit (ISU) staff to pro-actively meet user demands. To establish a core of well-trained ISU staff and users through an integrated programme of training. To improve effectiveness of forestry information services by providing access to e-mail and the Internet, and establishing a list server."
