Setting out priority areas of cooperation and concrete action for Ukraine's forests
These and other priorities were identified during the two-day hybrid Forum on Ukraine Forest Science and Education: Needs and Priorities for Collaboration on 21-22 November 2023 at the IIASA premises in Laxenburg, Austria. The event was organized jointly by the National University of Life and Environmental Sciences of Ukraine (NUBiP), the International Institute of Applied System Analysis (IIASA), and the International Union of Forest Research Organizations (IUFRO), with support from the Austrian Federal Ministry for Agriculture, Forestry, Regions and Water Management (BML).
"The forum brought together Ukrainian forestry students, early and mid-career forest researchers and representatives of leading European universities and international institutions to discuss practical measures and strategic steps toward supporting sustainable forest management in Ukraine," notes Forum Chair, Professor Sergiy Zibtsev (NUBiP/IIASA).
A report summarizing the main outcomes of the Forum will soon be published and shared widely with the intent of mobilizing coordinated and impactful action by stakeholders and policymakers in support of forest science and education in Ukraine.
