Only 10 days remaining to register for a unique FAO-run online climate change conference

Forestry policy makers, forest economists, scientists and researchers from all over the world are expected to register for a unique online conference entitled The Economics of Climate Change Mitigation Options in the Forest Sector.

 The conference, organized by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the UN (FAO), will take place in six sessions during 6 -27 February 2015. More than 900 registrations have been received from 121 countries already. The conference will focus on the costs and benefits of ways in which the forest sector can mitigate climate change, and examine how different countries mitigate climate change through forest management interventions and improved use of wood. Discussions will also showcase the lessons learned from mitigation efforts and their impacts on the value chain of forest products.

The deadline for registration is 16 January. Visit the conference web page www.fao.org/forestry/cc-mitigation-economics to read more and register. See the draft conference programme at http://www.fao.org/forestry/41762-05d11445e737ad9f209f0724851d10028.pdf.
