Interviews conducted by the IUFRO 2024 Congress Organizing Committee:


IUFRO-SPDC continued its commitment to assisting forest scientists from economically disadvantaged countries through its Scientist Assistance Program (SAP). Given that 2024 marked a Congress year, the Programme focused its efforts on providing travel grants specifically tailored for attendance at the XXVI IUFRO World Congress in Stockholm, Sweden. At the same time, 60 early- and mid-career scientists with approved SAP sponsorship participated in the Pre-Congress Training. Finally, an exhibition stand was dedicated to showcase IUFRO-SPDC projects on Forest Landscape Restoration (FLR) from around the world, a tour with virtual reality goggles of an integrated landscape management with agroforestry project and a networking bingo.
