As announced already the call for session is open. Then the best way to
begin the year is planning to attend a great IUFRO Conference in Argentina
in forested landscapes
Get ready then to be next October in Posadas!
Please visit the website with the preliminary information:
October 1-5 Posadas, Argentina
Please spread the news in your networks!
This conference will highlight accelerated changes imprinted in our planet
within the Anthropocene. Transformation of forest use that is occurring in
response to the pressures of globalization, population growth, resource
scarcity and ecological degradation are part of the BIG challenges ahead.
Biodiversity is essential to human well-being, but people have been reducing
biodiversity throughout human history. Loss of species and degradation of
ecosystems are likely to further accelerate in the coming years.
Nonetheless, global goals to reduce the rate of biodiversity loss have
mostly not been achieved. It is essential to take into account ecological,
economic and functional values of the landscape to improve planning and
decision-making. Operational solutions are needed to reconciling
biodiversity conservation in the light of increasing demands of natural
resources and land.
Within the framework of this Conference will focus on key topics to assess
problems but also to find solutions towards a better future of forested
Call for sessions and Forums is open NOW
Please see information attach. and visit the site for further details
Call for abstracts will be launched end of February
Please note also the call for discussion forums on "Challenges of
