Due to the continued uncertainties created by the pandemic, the IBFRA 2021 Conference has been moved to an entirely online format. The dates for the conference remain unchanged, August 16-20, 2021. This decision was made to prioritize the health and safety of attendees.
The objectives of the 2020 IBFRA Conference are:
- Present and discuss the current scientific understanding on the vulnerability and resilience of the boreal biome to climate change, associated emerging trajectories and the socio-economic implications.
- Foster interdisciplinary collaborations for an integrative understanding of the boreal biome.
- Strengthen the dialogue between scientists and the stakeholders of the boreal biome, from politics to indigenous communities, representatives of the wood industry and civil society.
- Inspiring new research and policy development to ensure efficient adaptation and mitigation strategies to climate change, in the boreal region.
