The IUFRO World Congress 2024, an event considered the pinnacle of international forest research, will bring together leading scientists, policymakers, practitioners, and stakeholders from around the globe. With the theme “Forests and Society towards 2025” and a focus on forest contributions to the UN 2030 Agenda and its Sustainable Development Goals, the Congress aims to streamline forest research agendas, further dialogues and cross-sector cooperation, and promote the multi-functionality of forests and their services.

The Congress will reiterate the importance of restoration of degraded forest ecosystems and the implementation of restoration measures in forest management for mitigating climate change, conserving biodiversity, and ensuring the well-being of communities. By promoting interdisciplinary research and partnerships, the Congress will offer an invaluable opportunity to identify best practices, develop strategies, and offer scientific evidence  for policies to enhance forest restoration efforts.

The IUFRO World Congress 2024 will feature an array of presentations, panel discussions, workshops, and exhibitions that highlight the latest research, innovations, and successful case studies including forest restoration. If you would like to share your expertise and experiences, showcasing effective techniques and approaches to restoring diverse forest ecosystems in different regions and contexts, we invite you to submit an abstract on a related session.
