Researchers from several scientific disciplines are invited to submit their contribution to this interdisciplinary conference “Governing and managing forests for multiple ecosystem services across the globe” on integrated forest management approaches and ecosystem services.
The scientific discussions will take place in Bonn (Germany), from the 26th until 28th of February 2020. The conference is organised by INFORMAR (EFI Bonn), Polyfores and other international partners, and invites contributions on the following major questions:
- How are trade-offs and synergies between different forest ecosystem services perceived, governed and managed across Europe and beyond?
- What concepts exist for integrated forest management, what drives them (policy/market/environmental change, social demands), including their implementation in practice, and what are their prospects for the future?
- What do we know about how such management concepts impact the ecological structures and interactions in forests, and how are these linked to specific outcomes (biodiversity, ecosystem services)?
The conference foresees specific sessions of dialogue with policy makers and forest practitioners to ensure connections between science, policy and forest management practice.
