IUFRO Forest Environment is pleased to announce the All Division 8 Conference in 2023. The event will be held in-person in Évora, Portugal, at the University of Évora, in the center of this historical UNESCO World Heritage town, located in South of Portugal, 140 km from Lisbon.

The event will focus on the critical role of forested landscapes facing pressures driven by the Anthropocene. It will also explore the mitigation options towards implementation of the SDGs. Six key thematic topics will be explored:

  • Human-nature relationships to support multifunctional forested landscapes, including socio-ecological approaches;
  • Innovative tools, methods and approaches to improve decision-support and monitoring systems (e.g., coupling models, remote sensing, spatial tools, terrestrial sensors);
  • Global change, vulnerability and adaptive management of forested landscapes – how to manage increasing pressures and threats above the current resilience tipping points;
  • Forest management, public policies, governance models and decision making;
  • Silvopastoral systems and sustainable integrative solutions at the landscape level;
  • Forest landscape restoration initiatives: biodiversity, economy and people.
