Session 34: "Institutional drivers and barriers for the management of
climate related hazards in the forest"
Forest-related hazards, e.g. wild fires, pest infestations, storms, are
expected to increase in a changing climate. Thus climate change is
expected to introduce so far unknown hazards and risks to some regions
while increasing already existing ones in other parts of the world.
While silviculture and forest planning already investigate the
consequences of these potentially harmful climate related hazards for
adaptive planning and management, socio-economic, institutional and
organisational factors are only rarely explored in forest research. We
want to address this research gap and invite both empirical and
conceptual contributions focussing on the socio-economic, institutional
or organisational factors as well as on their interlinkages that drive
and hinder the management of climate related hazards in the forest. The
following not exhaustive list of research questions could be addressed:
·Which institutional and socio-economic factors increase climate change
related hazards in the forest, such as wild fires, pest infestations,
droughts or storms? Which factors reduce the risks?
·What are the consequences for adaptation responses and how can these
responses be supported by policy and governance?
·How can institutional settings of forest management and other
interrelated policy fields (e.g. spatial planning, nature conservation)
support prevention of climate change induced forest-related hazards?
·How can adaptive governance of climate change induced forest-related
hazards be designed and what adaptive policies have already been put in
place and implemented?
·Which particular role do organizations, private or public, play for the
implementation of strategies regarding the management of climate change
hazards and risks?
·What are the particular approaches and strategies of dealing with
climate change effects with regard to different institutional/
management levels, management cultures or organizational types?
·How is the management of forest ecosystems in the face of climate
related hazards characterized in comparison with other/ “neighbouring”
sectors from natural resources management such as coast/ water
management, landscape management or agriculture?

The call for abstracts is now open for this congress at http://iufro2017.com/call-for-abstracts and the deadline for abstract submission is 30 November. Submit abstracts indicating proposal number 174, “Connecting People to Forest Science: Innovative Communication Approaches for Delivering Science” in the Congress segment: All Division 9 (Forest Policy and Economics) Meeting as you first choice for inclusion in the program.
I will soon be sending a link with a summary, presentations, and other information from our Joint UNECE-FAO-FCN and IUFRO Communications and Public Relations Workshop held in Portland, Oregon, USA, 29 August to 1 September, 2016. We are also developing a social network for our working party. You will receive a survey in the near future that will be used to identify the best networking method for us.

The 18th international conference of the International Boreal Forest Research Association (IBFRA) is being hosted by the USDA Forest Service and the University of Maine in Bangor, Maine, USA. Invited keynote speakers, scientific sessions (oral and poster) and panel discussions will explore new scientific findings and their linkages with policy relating to the addressing change in boreal forests. Designed to engage and inform scientists, resource managers and policy makers, the conference themes will address the current and emerging challenges for the boreal, the role of science in addressing those challenges and the links between science, policy and practice.
Topics will include advances in research and policy relating to important regional and global issues around balancing resource use in the boreal with habitat and biodiversity objectives, strategies for mitigation of and adaptation to risks relating to a changing climate and changes in disturbance regimes, and socio-economic changes and impacts. Emphasis will be placed on the use of science to inform management practices and public policy in the boreal.
The abstract submission site will open on October 1, 2016, and authors will have until January 22, 2017 to submit papers. Sessions may be proposed to Dr. Christopher Woodall at abstracts(a)2017ibfra.org by January 1, 2017. Any questions may be directed to info(a)2017ibfra.org.
Date: 5-9 June 2017

Invitation to participate
Passion for Nature – Integrated Governance: Mainstreaming Opportunities for Nature & Society
Lommel, Belgium, 12 to 14 October 2016
It is our pleasure to invite you to participate in a major European conference, “Passion for Nature – Integrated Governance: Mainstreaming Opportunities for Nature & Society”.
Linked with the <http://plus.sendis.be/t/y-l-dutulky-juhljijihi-y/> Natura 2000 Biogeographical Process, this landmark event marks the tenth anniversary of the Bosland Partnership. This partnership consists of the municipalities of Hechtel-Eksel, Overpelt, and Lommel, the Flemish Agency for Nature and Forest, Regionaal Landschap Lage Kempen, and Limburg Tourism. Since its establishment, the partnership has maintained and enhanced core traditional forestry-related activities (timber, wood and biomass production), while successfully developing a wide range of innovative approaches with significant social and scientific benefits. Bosland is a true example of successful multifunctional territorial development and integrated nature governance.
This Conference creates a European-level platform to network with colleagues from around our beautiful continent. Together, participants will have the opportunity to discuss priorities and integrated governance approaches, important not only for nature and Natura 2000 specifically, but also for human health, economic development, job creation, climate adaptation and mitigation, water management, tourism, and many more human dimensions. Working with people’s “Passion for Nature” enables us to position biodiversity, nature and ecosystem services as essential pillars for greening economies, as well as for innovation. To foster the sharing of passion we also invite you to bring along successful projects and innovative ideas to share with others at our Knowledge Market.
The conference provides an important opportunity to compare approaches that can further increase benefits for both nature and society at a European level. For more information, please find a preliminary draft programme <http://plus.sendis.be/t/y-l-dutulky-juhljijihi-j/> here. You can also visit the conference web page <http://plus.sendis.be/t/y-l-dutulky-juhljijihi-d/> here and register by clicking <http://plus.sendis.be/t/y-l-dutulky-juhljijihi-h/> here.
We would be delighted if you would accept this invitation to participate. We look forward to addressing future challenges together and realising new joint opportunities of truly integrated and sustainable regional development in sites across Europe.

The International Conference "Between Tradition and Increasing Challenges: Future Development of Small-scale and Community Forestry in Times of Global Change", organized by the three IUFRO Units 3.08.00, 9.03.00 and 9.05.06 is coming up soon!
The conference will provide a unique opportunity to bring together researchers from all over the world to share evidence-based knowledge on small-scale and community forestry issues in Latin America, including the ecological, institutional and anthropogenic factors influencing the management and evolution of forests and forest landscapes. As traditional knowledge plays a substantial role in both small-scale and community forest ownership models, the integration of a historical dimension will provide an additional source of information in order to interpret and understand the challenges and constraints related to global change.
Attached are the preliminary program and an overview of the In-Conference Tour for your information!
Registration is still open at http://www.latinoamericajointiufromeeting.com/registration/ - so make your plans and participate in this exciting event!
