It is our great pleasure to announce that the Joint International Congress entitled “SUSTAINABLE RESTORATION OF MEDITERRANEAN FORESTS - Analysis and perspective within the context of bio-based economy development under global changes” will be held in Palermo (Italy), 19 – 21 April 2017.
It is known worldwide that conservation and sustainable management of forests plays a pivotal role in the green economy of present and future generations. It is for this reason that the achievement of an improved knowledge of how to adapt forest and forests landscapes to the challenges posed by climate and social changes must become the first goal for all researchers and stakeholder active in this important sector of any national economies.
Because of Palermo latitudinal position in Sicily, the period of the year chosen for holding the congress is normally the best period of the year in terms of climate and vegetation life-time. Therefore we are sure that there will be outstanding social events, good opportunities to establish new collaborations among participants, and relaxed discussion in addition to a fabulous post-congress excursion.
On behalf of the Organizing Committee, we kindly invite you to Palermo International Congress in April 2017, ITALY.
