COST Connect: Climate Change and Forest Systems, Sofia, Bulgaria, 5 June 2018
Climate changes and related extreme events and risks increasingly affect forests and their associated ecological, sociological and economic systems requiring pro-active adaptation measures for maintaining their sustainability. In parallel, the mitigation potentials of forests and forestry wood chains are progressively included in the international climate regime following Paris agreement. Increased knowledge and better understanding of interactions between climate and forest systems will be crucial in the future for supporting innovations and actions to combat climate change and to reach some of the sustainable development goals and targets.
In this global context, COST and SCAR (the Standing Committee on Agricultural Research) are jointly organising an event to explore new horizons for research and innovation in the forest-based sector. The event will be organised as an interactive workshop involving related COST Actions and scientific communities, stakeholders and policy makers to facilitate dialogue and discussion on future research agenda.
This event is by invitation only. For more information, please go to the COST website
