We live in a changing world. Droughts and shifts in climate lead to hotter, dryer, and windier seasons in many temperate areas. People are increasingly relocating to where urban areas and forests meet. In many regions, including across the Mediterranean, abandonment of traditional agriculture, forestry, and other land uses have led to a build-up of biomass in forests.
The first edition of EFI’s Young Leadership Programme – Mediterranean (2018) was a great success, with positive evaluations from participants and speakers alike. Will you join us in 2020 and make the next edition outstanding?

The Białowieża Science Initiative (BSI) gathered more than 20 scientists from various disciplines and distinct perspectives on the Białowieża Forest management conflict for an independent assessment of the scientific evidence. The assessment covers forest history, socio-economic factors, governance, ecology and disturbances to evaluate diverging perspectives on appropriate management.

Our principal scientist, Marcus Lindner, discusses the impacts of large-scale tree restoration to stop climate change in a blog post.

A recently published study by Prof. Crowther’s team at the Institute for Integrative Biology at ETH (Zurich) in Science Magazine used satellite imagery, field data and computer models to highlight the potential of large-scale forest restoration for climate change mitigation.
