IUFRO Task Forces are established on a temporary basis during each 5-year IUFRO Board term to advance inter‐disciplinary cooperation in forest research fields that span two or more IUFRO Divisions. Their focus is on emerging key issues that are of great interest to policy makers and groups inside and outside the forest sector, and contribute to international processes and activities. Since 1991, over 40 IUFRO Task Forces have brought together scientists, policy-makers and other stakeholders to conduct innovative work across a broad range of topics (for more information on these earlier Task Forces please visit: https://www.iufro.org/science/task-forces/former-task-forces/).
Current Task Forces include:
- Forest Education
- Monitoring Global Tree Mortality Patterns and Trends
- Fire$: Economic Drivers of Global Wildland Fire Activity
- Forests and Water Interactions in a Changing Environment
- Gender Equality in Forestry
- Resilient Planted Forests Serving Society & Bioeconomy
- Strengthening Mediterranean Nursery Systems for Forest Reproductive Material Procurement to Adapt to the Effects of Climate Change
- Unlocking the Bioeconomy and Non-Timber Forest Products
- Transforming Forest Landscapes for Futures Climates and Human Well-Being
