International Boreal Forest Research Association Conference 2021

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.
