The first issue of IUFRO News in 2015 focuses on forest landscape restoration.

This work was presented during a side event at the 2014 IUFRO World Congress jointly organized by the World Resources Institute (WRI) and IUFRO.

Another report informs about the international conference on Natural Resources, Green Technology & Sustainable Development – GREEN2014 supported by IUFRO Division 9.00.00 in Zagreb last November.
