The European project SINCERE (Spurring INnovations for forest eCosystem sERvices in Europe), funded by the Horizon 2020 programme, is organising its first webinar in the SINCERE Talks series in September. This webinar is structured in two parts and will address the relationship between forest and landscape management, watershed protection and hydrological services.

The webinar focuses on two overarching questions: how forest management affects hydrological services, with emphasis on water quality; followed by practical examples of how such management can form the basis of a payment for ecosystem services scheme.

Two reknowned speakers, Meine van Noordwijk (ICRAF) and Sven Wunder (EFI), discuss the issues with participation from the SINCERE Innovation Action Case Studies.

When and where?

Friday 25 September 2020 from 10 – 12 AM (Central European Time – CET). The webinar will take place online and is open to external participants.
