Forest Science and Education in Ukraine - Priorities for Action

The summary of the two-day Forum on Ukraine Forest Science and Education: Needs and Priorities for Collaboration is now available!

The Ukrainian forestry and forest sector is suffering unprecedent challenges – not only due to the ongoing war and resulting research capacity drain, contamination, and devastation, but also due to factors like climate change, forest health dynamics, wildfires, and a decrease in forest productivity.

To discuss the current challenges and propose solutions, the two-day Forum on Ukraine Forest Science and Education: Needs and Priorities for Collaboration was held from 21-22 November 2023 at the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA) in Laxenburg, Austria, and online. The event was jointly organized by IIASA, the National University of Life and Environmental Sciences of Ukraine (NUBiP), and the International Union of Forest Research Organizations (IUFRO), with support from the Austrian Federal Ministry for Agriculture, Forestry, Regions, and Water Management (BML), and built on previous work by Forest Europe and the International Science Council.
