Governing and managing forests for multiple ecosystem services has for a long time been an important paradigm.
A variety of forest management concepts have been developed to accommodate distinct social demands in different contexts. All these forest management approaches are embedded in a complex policy framework.
Major global challenges such as climate change, biodiversity loss, rising demands for products and services due to global population and economic growth, and urbanisation affect how these approaches are implemented.
The conference will debate the following questions:
• What is the current state of integrated forest management, including global scale approaches?
• What are the trade-offs and synergies between forest ecosystem services and how are they perceived, governed and managed across Europe and beyond?
• What is the impact of such management concepts on the ecological structure and interactions in forests?
