Annual Report 2017

The short version of the IUFRO Annual Report – "Highlights 2017" is now available for download.


By far the most important highlight of 2017 for IUFRO was the celebration of our 125th anniversary. And the high point of a suite of celebratory events was an extraordinary and inspiring Anniversary Congress in Freiburg, Germany, https://www.iufro.org/events/anniversary-congress/

IUFRO participates actively in major forest-related policy processes. In 2017, for example, IUFRO was again well represented at the 12th Session of the United Nations Forum on Forests (UNFF) in New York, and at the Global Landscapes Forum (GLF) in Bonn, Germany.

One of IUFRO's key interests and objectives during the current Board Term is to better understand and promote education in forestry. IUFRO made considerable progress towards this objective in 2017 and was very successful at further intensifying the collaboration with students and early career scientists.

The outlook chapter of the Annual Report focuses on the role of communication and discusses how and to what extent the global forest science community can respond to the opportunities – and challenges – presented by new communication trends and technologies.
