FRA reports on 'forests for food' claims

Forestry Research Associates (FRA) has reported on claims from the Collaborative Partnership on Forests (CPF) that the world's forests can play a vital role in feeding those living in developing countries.

Bainbridge Island, WA, November 04, 2011 - Forestry Research Associates (FRA) has reported on claims from the Collaborative Partnership on Forests (CPF) that the world's forests can play a vital role in feeding those living in developing countries.

Although forests undoubtedly provide industry with the essential raw materials it needs to develop and expand, forests are also important for feeding the world’s hungry, claims the CPF. It adds that policymakers and international development agencies need to bear this role in mind when planning how forests should be managed.

The Food and Agricultural Organization of the UN, which is an active member of the CPF agrees with the claims. Its Assistant Director General, Eduardo Rojas-Briales, stated, “Forests and trees on farms are a direct source of food and cash income for more than a billion of the world’s poorest people.

“They provide both staple foods and supplemental foods. To enhance these benefits, governments and development partners should increase investments in support of sustainable forest management and rehabilitation of degraded forest lands,” he added.

FRA, which is a research and analysis consultancy supporting sustainable forestry and forestry investment, lent its support for the call for the importance of forests in the feeding of the world’s poor, to be considered when forestry management policy is established. Its analysis partner, Peter Collins, stated, “We agree that important consideration should be given to the important role and standing forests and sustainable forestry management plays in the developing world.

“We believe in supporting projects that boost the volume of forest and in emerging economies, such as the plantation project run by Greenwood Management and other similar businesses in Brazil. These projects add to the country’s forested land and also help to prevent the deforestation of native forests,” added Mr Collins.

Agroforestry has been touted as a viable solution that allows forests to be managed for timber, while helping to provide crops and livestock for food. The World Agroforestry Center’s Director General, Tony Simons, explained, “Agroforestry provides a climate smart agriculture alternative that can increase food production and improve farmers’ incomes and living standards.”

Eating Disorders Treatment Award Named in Honor of Eating Recovery Center’s Dr. Craig Johnson

Center’s Chief Clinical Officer Honored by National Eating Disorders Association
for Outstanding Contributions to the Eating Disorders Field

Denver, CO, November 02, 2011 - Nationally recognized eating disorders expert, Craig Johnson, PhD, FAED, CEDS, has been honored by the National Eating Disorders Association (NEDA), with the creation of a prestigious professional award in his name. The “Craig Johnson Award for Excellence in Clinical Practice and Training,” which was awarded for the first time at NEDA’s annual conference in October, recognizes top eating disorders professionals who have distinguished themselves with their contributions to eating disorders knowledge, training and treatment.

Dr. Johnson is chief clinical officer of Eating Recovery Center (, an international center for eating disorders recovery, providing comprehensive treatment for anorexia, bulimia, EDNOS and binge eating disorder.

“Craig Johnson is one of the most passionate, dedicated and talented clinicians treating eating disorders,” said Lynn Grefe, president and chief executive officer of NEDA. “As a pioneer in the field, he has shared his knowledge generously with all who enter this field, and has been a torch of inspiration for others in the search for more effective treatments.”

Dr. Johnson has been a leader in the eating disorders field for more than 30 years. He is a clinical professor of psychiatry at the University of Oklahoma Medical School and has formerly held faculty appointments at Yale, University of Chicago and Northwestern University Medical Schools.

An innovator in eating disorders treatment, Dr. Johnson has built eating disorders programs at the University of Chicago, Northwestern University Medical School, Laureate Psychiatric Clinic and Hospital, and has contributed significant clinical expertise to the development of Eating Recovery Center’s programs.

Dr. Johnson has been actively involved in treatment research. As a principal investigator on two National Institute of Mental Health funded collaborative studies, he has made significant contributions to the field’s understanding of the role of genetics in eating disorders and the effectiveness of Family Based Therapy in the treatment of anorexia nervosa. He has authored three books and more than 80 scientific articles.

In his commitment to advancing eating disorders understanding and treatment implications, he has served as founding editor of the International Journal of Eating Disorders, co-founder of the International Conference on Eating Disorders, founder of the Academy for Eating Disorders and co-founder of the Eating Disorders Research Society. He is also a founding member and past president of NEDA.

“It is not hyperbole to say that Craig is our field's pre-eminent visionary, for it was his prescience and vigor that led to the creation of the Academy for Eating Disorders, now home to research scholars and practitioners alike,” said Michael Strober, PhD, Franklin Mint chair in eating disorders, professor of psychiatry and director of the Eating Disorders Program at UCLA's David Geffen School of Medicine. “There is no doubt that Craig's legacy will be timeless.”
