    Communicating Forest Science (IUFRO)

    • 11:10 AM

    Communicating about science in the setting of a forest, grove of trees, or chaparral can bring people with very different experiences together in unexpected and, sometimes, highly productive ways. The language of science translated and brought to non-scientists can transform confusion into understanding. When communicated well – whether in a forest, in a meeting room, or across the miles electronically – science information helps people sort out complex situations and changing conditions related to forests.[Read More]

    Forests and trees support sustainable agriculture.

They also contribute to the food security of hundreds of millions of people, for whom they are important sources of food, energy and income. Yet, agriculture remains the major driver of deforestation globally, and agricultural, forestry and land policies are often at odds.
