This issue has a focus on the challenges of reforestation and forest landscape restoration, and on strengthening collaboration in the field of criteria and indicators for SFM.


The Second International Conference on Reforestation Challenges on 27-29 June 2016 in Cracow, Poland, was an opportunity for scientists to gather and present results and relate experiences from research areas relevant to reforestation. A total of 149 participants from Poland, Turkey, Sweden, Czech Republic, Slovak Republic, Serbia, USA, and Spain attended the meeting, which was co-sponsored by IUFRO Research Group 3.02.00 - Stand establishment and treatment.

More than one third of the members of IUFRO Working Party 9.01.05 – Research and development of indicators for sustainable forest management participated in an international expert workshop on Criteria and Indicators that took place on 1-3 May 2016 in Ottawa, Canada. C&I experts from all continents representing regional C&I processes, national and international bodies and organizations as well as national government agencies met to strengthen collaboration on important C&I issues.

Given the great current political momentum and commitment towards forest landscape restoration (FLR) by global and national policy makers and the need to discuss and further develop approaches and mechanisms of FLR implementation on the ground, IUFRO organized an international knowledge-sharing workshop on "Forest Landscape Restoration and Global Change: From Policy to Practice" held back to back with the High-level Bonn Challenge Meeting in Kigali, Rwanda on 26-27 July 2016.
