    The Syrian conflict 2011 to date) has had a major impact on the social fabric of the country, the major economic sectors and the livelihoods of Syrian people, including the agriculture sector and rural livelihoods that depend on agriculture The conflict has also driven large numbers of young people, including technical experts and technicians across many disciplines, to emigrate, creating a devastating impact on the technical institutions that will be the key to the eventual reconstruction of the country and relaunch of the economy In the agriculture sector, for example, the government run Organization for Seed Multiplication technical facility based in Aleppo has lost 60 of 110 staff with a Master’s degree or above Similar situations can be found at all levels, and across a number of subsectors and industries It is likely that skills shortages will be a major constraint to the recovery of the post conflict economy One priority identified by the government is the need to restore agricultural technical education This has three levels agricultural technical schools providing targeted secondary education on technical subjects relating to agriculture agricultural diplomas (two years of post secondary education) and agricultural degrees (five years at university level) Agricultural technical schools, targeting those aged from 15 to 18 will be key to rebuilding the cadre of agricultural technicians, who are the backbone of the agricultural vocational services food production and processing.

    The role of the forest in countries’ efforts to achieve the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are widely recognized. To maximize the contribution of forests to the SDGs, a workforce trained in forestry and a broad range of other forestrelated disciplines are needed as are widespread public knowledge and understanding of forest topics. However, recent literature highlights concerns that forest education is often not meeting the fast-changing needs of the labour market and the importance of forests and of forest managers and policymakers is often under-appreciated. The scope of this report covers education and training related to forests, trees outside forests and other wooded land (i.e. natural forests, forest plantations, woodlands, agroforests and urban forests). It includes education delivered through programmes of forestry and forest sciences as well as programmes of broader scope, (e.g. natural resources management, environmental sciences). It covers all levels of formal education: primary, secondary, technical and vocational education and training (TVET) and universities and colleges (UC). This report reveals awareness of some overarching actions that would benefit forest education, including ameliorating a negative public image of professional forestrelated jobs and careers; developing better collaboration between educational institutions, the forest sector (private and public) and the general public; improving demographic diversity in the post-secondary student population; and strengthening digital readiness at all levels of education. The data collected by global survey on forest education supplemented by the six regional consultations represent a wealth of current information on the status and needs in forest education.
