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!

Forests and trees can play a crucial role in addressing planetary challenges such as climate change and biodiversity loss while moving towards sustainable economies and increasing food security.
The State of the World’s Forests 2022 (SOFO2022) provides three pathways to implement this new perspective of making development work with the environment: ‘protect’: measures for halting deforestation; ‘restore’: making land more productive, and ‘use’: investments in building economically viable green value chains that provide resilient livelihoods. SOFO2022 is a contribution to the implementation of SDG 15 (Life on Land) and the United Nations Strategic Plan for Forests and its Global Forest Goals.
Important commitments regarding the world’s forests have been made at the United Nations Food Systems Summit (UNFSS), the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change Conference of the Parties (UNFCCC COP26), the United Nations Environment Assembly 5.2 (UNEA 5.2), the United Nations Forum on Forests (UNFF17), and the Seoul Forest Declaration and the Ministerial Call on Sustainable wood adopted at World Forestry Congress (WFC) 2022.
Join FAO and Members of the Collaborative Partnership on Forests in this discussion on interfaces between protection, restoration and sustainable use of forests as building blocks for a green recovery. Together they can conserve nature, better provide for human well-being, and contribute to inclusive recovery, build resilient and sustainable economies.
