Join the annual interdisciplinary conference on research in tropical and subtropical agriculture, natural resource management and rural development!
A new study finds that in the state of Pará alone, selective logging, road-building, fires and other disturbances have reduced biodiversity as much as clearing 92,000–139,000 km2of pristine forest.
International mechanisms like REDD are meant to work as an incentive for countries to slow down and possibly stop the rates of deforestation of valuable forests land. REDD is implemented in many countries around the world but the effectiveness and fairness of the strategy is debated in the policy and research arena. Is this the most effective way to encourage sustainable forestry?
The first day will be devoted to sharing knowledge between scientists and practitioners from the policy and management community. This feedback will then be taken further during the second day by...
In the tropics, there are vast areas of degraded land, which can be restored back into higher and sustainable production with tree planting. In this way previously degraded lands could play a key role for improved food security and at the same time offer various other benefits.
