Webinar: How to integrate segregation in sustainable forest management


The registration for the sixth meeting of the European Network Integrate is now open! The webinar will take place on 28 September. This is the second of two meetings organised by the Danish Nature Agency, Denmark being the current chair of the European Network Integrate. The focus will be on how to integrate segregation in sustainable forest management and the tools, scale and processes involved.

Experts will speak about the challenges of setting aside forests for conservation, the importance of data on species and their ecology in the selection of sites, forest restoration, the tools to stimulate old growth elements, and the diversification of even aged forest stands.

The Integrate Network is an alliance of representatives of different European countries that promotes the integration of nature conservation into sustainable forest management at the policy, practice and research level. Forest management challenges related to nature conservation are rather similar across Europe. The Integrate Network promotes the exchange of successful management practices and experiences among its Members. The European Forest Institute (EFI) accompanies the process in its role as facilitator and scientific advisor.
