8th Mediterranean Forest Week

Save the date for the next edition of the Mediterranean Forest Week (MFW), focusing on the restoration of forest ecosystems in the Mediterranean region. The MFW serves as a platform for cooperation among researchers, policymakers, and stakeholders, fostering dialogue on the challenges faced by Mediterranean forests.

Despite the continuous increase in forest cover over the past decades, mainly due to land use changes, the region faces challenges, including 80 million hectares of degraded land and 400,000 hectares burnt every year by wildfires. Climate change threatens 16% of animal and plant species in Mediterranean forests, while the severity and length of droughts shrinks the distribution ranges of the most important tree species in the Mediterranean. The 8th MFW will delve into solutions and initiatives for the restoration and sustainable management of these ecosystems.

MFW is one of the highlights of the Mediterranean forest calendar, offering the opportunity for networking, brainstorming and solution sharing on the most crucial issues for Mediterranean forests. MFW brings the Mediterranean forest community together for a deep dive into what is happening today and for the future in Mediterranean forests.

Date:  4-8 November 2024
Location:  Barcelona, Spain
Organizers:  The Secretariat of the FAO Committee of Mediterranean Forestry Questions – Silva Mediterranea, The European Forest Institute Mediterranean Facility (EFIMED)
