Agroforestry for the transition towards sustainability and bioeconomy

EURAF 2020 - 5th European Agroforestry Conference #euraf2020

Agroforestry for the transition towards sustainability and bioeconomy is the guiding thread of this 5th edition of the Conference, that ties together the main four themes at the center of the debate:

  • Agroforestry, ecosystem services, landscape, and rural development
  • Agroforestry systems and innovations
  • Agroforestry and policy for sustainable development
  • Agroforestry, education, dissemination

Sardinia has been selected as the ideal setting for hosting EURAF 2020. The Island well represents the Mediterranean environment where agroforestry, embodied by a mosaic of historic rural landscapes, plays a strategic agro-ecological role for rural development.

The conference is designed as a widespread event across the urban center of Nuoro. The town and the area around it well depict agroforestry both in its more traditional forms and in the innovative aspects. This land is historically very open to contamination and continuously fosters new cultural visions for innovation as attested by the local University activities and the numerous institutions for contemporary art and culture. 

The EURAF 2020 is organized with the local support of Uninuoro and FoReSTAS in collaboration with several Italian public and private research institutions, national, regional and local authorities, associations, all dealing with agroforestry at different levels.
