Salt Lake City, Utah, USA
Forests and trees provide a wide range of environmental, economic, social and cultural benefits to people in rural communities and urban centers worldwide. Their conservation and sustainable management are closely linked to globally important societal challenges related to environmental protection, sustainable economic development, food security, human health, water and energy resource provision, and climate change. The best available scientific knowledge is needed to effectively address these issues at multiple scales (locally, regionally and globally) and provide a strong basis for forest and forest landscape management practices and policy decisions.
The scientific program for the IUFRO 2014 World Congress will bring together scientists of all ages, from throughout the world, across the full range of forest-related disciplines, who are engaged in research, education and application of science-based knowledge to address these challenges and meet the changing needs of our increasingly globalized society.
Several of IIASA's ESM Scientists will be attending the IUFRO World Congress and will be giving presentations.
Florian Kraxner will be organizing the sessions: International to Local Forest Governance: Taking Stock of Theories, Methodologies and Findings, parts I & II.
Florian Kraxner will also be organizing and chairing the session along with Sabine Fuss: Global and regional deployment of Biomass & CCS (BECCS): Reconciling top-down and bottom-up approaches and REDD+BECCS Nexus.
Florian Kraxner will be organizing and chairing the session: Addressing The Drivers Of Deforestation: Exploring Synergies Between REDD+ And Forest Policy.
