The International Conference on Responses of Forests and Adaptation Management to Climate Change is a meeting of international experts, as well as policy makers in fields such as forest ecology and biology, eco-hydrology, watershed management, forest fires, forest entomology and global change sciences.
The goal of the conference is to share knowledge, research outcomes and to discuss adaptive measures for sustainable forest management in a changing environment.
The University of Michigan and the CGIAR Research Program on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS) are hosting an upcoming workshop on livelihoods and emissions on the forest-farm frontier, in partnership with the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI) and the Rights and Resources Institute (RRI). Coordinated by CCAFS partner Arun Agrawal, workshop participants will examine institutional mechanisms that maintain the forest-farm boundary and avoid increased agricultural expansion into forests, to reduce emissions, while also conserving biodiversity and promoting sustainable livelihoods.
The CGIAR Research Program on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS), together with several Canadian agencies, is hosting a seminar on food security in a changing climate.
