Tackling Climate Change: The Contribution of Forest Scientific Knowledge
This international conference will focus on the current state of knowledge on climate change impacts on forest ecosystems, services and activities. It will highlight methods and challenges to mitigate or tackle climate change impacts, both before they arise and once they have occurred. It will show how climate change and forest sciences address the issues facing forest managers.
The event will be organized in two periods:
• Scientific conference on 21 -22 May, which will be open to stakeholders and everyone interested in climate change and forestry;
• Forum for stakeholders together with the scientist on 23 May, which will be followed by a field trip.
For this second period, a call for inputs from stakeholders is now open in order to identify key questions and also some potential speakers (panel sessions). Deadline for submissions: 15 April, 2012.
