XXV IUFRO World Congress - Forest Research and Cooperation for Sustainable Development
Forests and Climate Change
The work of this group supports national and regional adaptation in Africa by means of an improved scientific understanding of the impacts of climate change on forests and people in Africa and the options and priorities for adaptation.
Kubease (Ash), Dec.
Forest Scientists, Colleagues,
We are pleased to inform you that the Deadline for Abstracts for the XXV IUFRO Congress in Curitiba, Brazil, 29 September – 5 October 2019, has been extended to Thursday, 10 January, 2019!
This report entitled "Forest and Water on a Changing Planet: Vulnerability, Adaptation and Governance Opportunities" presents the outcomes of the sixth global scientific assessment undertaken in the framework of GFEP.
Deadline for proposals: 1 August 2018
Congress Title: "Forest Research and Cooperation for Sustainable Development"
Johannesburg, November 29, 2017 - Nigeria has pledged to restore 4 million hectares of degraded land by 2030 as part of the AFR100 Initiative and Bonn Challenge, signalling the continuing drive across Africa to bring back productivity to its land.

The introduction of carbon finance as an incentive in forestry farming has a potential of increasing the amount of carbon sequestered. However, this has created a daunting task among investors in forestry to optimise the joint production of wood and carbon sequestration.
Carbon sequestration has become a crucial service forests provide for regulation and mitigation of climate change through reduction of greenhouse gas emissions. In Kenya, Cupressus lusitanica, Pinus patula and Eucalyptus saligna are common exotic plantation species grown in high potential areas.
Osyris lanceolata (African Sandalwood) belongs to the family Santalaceae that hosts some of the most valuable species for perfumery oil extraction.
Timber species differ in their response to logging disturbance. Knowledge about the impacts of different logging intensities is necessary to determine levels of timber extraction compatible with species responses in order to refine management interventions.
The 12th Session of the United Nations Forum on Forests will be held in New York from 1-5 May 2017. The Agenda items include the following:
Contribute to the development of a mathematical modelling framework that can bring functional diversity into representation of tropical African forests in ecosystem models
Earth is currently experiencing its strongest El Niño for many decades. Such events lead to a carbon source in the tropical land biosphere, but the exact mechanism of this carbon source is poorly described and quantified.
Forest encroachment into savanna is occurring at an unprecedented rate across tropical Africa, leading to a loss of valuable savanna habitat. One of the first stages of forest encroachment is the establishment of tree seedlings at the forest–savanna transition.
The impacts of charcoal production on woodland were assessed in the Forest-Savannah Transition Zone of Ghana to facilitate policy formulation for a win-win situation for both sustainable woodland management and charcoal production.
