Cool Forests at Risk? The critical role of boreal and
mountain ecosystems for people, bioeconomy, and climate
17–20 September 2018
Laxenburg (near Vienna), Austria.
The International Boreal Forest Research Association (IBFRA) provides a forum for enhancing information exchange among boreal forest researchers, managers, and policy-makers for over 25 years. The 18th IBFRA Conference for the first time will include mountain forests and other cool forests due to the issues that they share with true boreal forests under changing biophysical and social environments.
IBFRA18 is a unique opportunity for scientists (particularly early career scientists), professionals, policymakers, public authorities, and civil society stakeholders to share transdisciplinary knowledge and experience within the fields of boreal and mountain ecosystems.
The cool forest event is much more than a conference – it is the start of a collective effort, initiated by renowned scientists from all over the world. The event will bring together academia, decision makers, and stakeholders from policy, business, and civil society.
