International conference “Governing and managing forests for multiple ecosystem services worldwide

! Deadline is 30 September 2019.

Venue: Bonn, Germany


Conference

Forests are among the planet’s most important human life-supporting ecosystems. A variety of forest management concepts, such as sustainable forest management, ecosystem-based management, close-to-nature-forestry or multifunctional forestry have been developed to accommodate distinct social demands in different contexts.




Such forest management approaches are embedded in complex policy contexts, that build on a large variety of policies and initiatives. Governing and managing forests for multiple ecosystem services has for a long time been an important paradigm.


Furthermore, several factors that influence both forest policies and management originate from other sectors, such as agriculture, environment, energy, and rural development. At the same time, major global challenges such as climate change and biodiversity loss, rising demands for products and services due to global population and economic growth, and urbanisation affect the way how forests are and can be governed and managed.


The conference objective is to compile and synthesise the scientific evidence related to the current state of integrated forest management approaches. This can be understood as approaches where both policy and forest management provide a multitude of services at the same time, either at the forest stand or at the forest landscape level. 

The conference brings together academic researchers from different disciplines such as policy analysisecologyeconomicsforest (ecosystem) management and conservation. It also will engage policymakers and practitioners.


There will be a conference fee of ca. 100 - 150 Euro to cover meals and beverages as well as the field trip.
