Forest Landscape Restoration

IUFRO’s thematic networking strengthens collaboration among scientists and forest experts across countries and continents, and mobilises funding streams supporting the forest science community in economically disadvantaged countries. By strengthening the forest science community and enhancing the role of science in shaping forest policy and management, IUFRO - through SPDC - aims to contribute to achieving broader economic, environmental and social development objectives, such as poverty alleviation, improvement in the wellbeing of rural people and their access to resources, environmental protection and the conservation and sustainable utilisation of forest resources.

Participation

Within its thematic networking projects for synthesising globally available scientific knowledge as well as its training programme, SPDC pursues an open approach, providing various stakeholders and professionals of the public and private sectors with opportunities to participate in activities. In this way, existing multi-stakeholder partnerships are strengthened and new ones are formed. Special emphasis is placed on providing training opportunities for female scientists and professionals. At least 50% of all applications for SPDC training events are allocated to women.
