Dr. Marguerite Forest spent a three-month summer sabbatical at WFI in 2013. Her research focused on the development of interactive web maps using GIS to track and place all participants in the WFI Fellowship Program, the World Forestry Center’s International Educators Institute, and other group programs. Her web maps will be available on the WFI website soon and will be a lovely visual display of program participants and will allow for better communication among alumni of these programs.

Vijay spent his 6-month Fellowship studying the business demand for watershed service markets in Oregon. He interviewed buyers of watershed services in both the regulated and voluntary markets and ascertained motives for purchase into these services and the general perceptions of the buyers during this process. Vijay has spent several years studying payments for ecosystem services and will continue to work in this field in upcoming projects.
