Latsis Symposium 2018 – Scaling-Up Forest Restoration
The Latsis Symposium 2018 brings together leading scientists and practitioners to address the ecological, economic, and societal challenges for scaling-up forest restoration. The symposium is motivated by the challenge of delivering an effective global response to two major environmental threats, climate change and forest degradation through restoration.
The goal of the 2-day symposium is to work towards a conceptual understanding of the challenges and opportunities for scaling-up forest restoration efforts to meet Bonn Challenge targets. Presentations by experts from academia, non-governmental organisations, and the business sector will help to frame and inform discussions on forest restoration approaches. Registration is free of charge and ends on 30 May 2018.
