We would like to invite you again to join the upcoming GreenRisk4ALPs Mountain Forest Conference (https://cmi.eventsair.com/greenrisk4alps/), which will be held online on June 28 and 29, 2021.
The conference is promoting risk-based protective forest management as part of an integral and ecosystem-based natural hazard risk management in the Alpine Space. We will share new insights and developed decision support tools and discuss with representatives from organizations and networks such as the Alpine Convention, EUSALP, GLOMOS, IUCN, IUFRO, PLANALP, and the Interreg Alpine Space program.
This virtual conference will be held under the auspices of the IUFRO Division 8.03.00 - Natural Hazards and Risk Management, and the IUFRO Unit 8.03.02 - Snow and Avalanches, and is free of charge.
We are looking forward to seeing many of you online!
