The IUFRO 2019 Joint Conference on Genetics of Five-needle Pines & Rusts of Forest Trees in Invermere, British Columbia, Canada, focused particularly on breeding and genetic conservation of 5-needle pines, with special reference to screening and genetics programs for resistance to white pine blister rust (Cronartium ribicola).

A major objective of the conference of the IUFRO Working Party on Traditional forest knowledge in temperate and boreal regions in Vancouver, Canada, was to give all participants some practice in building sincere and equitable relationships, in which the traditional knowledge, perspectives, and authority of Indigenous Peoples and Local Communities (IPLCs) are as valued as scientific data gathering and interpretation techniques.

The first meeting of the new GFEP Expert Panel on Forests and Poverty, convened from 27-29 August in Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA, is a crucial milestone in the GFEP assessment process. The GFEP on Forests and Poverty will contribute to the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development by highlighting the nexus between SDG 1 on ending poverty and SDG 15 on life on land, as well as relevant links to SDG 8 on decent work and economic growth, and SDG 10 on reduced inequalities.
