Online Advanced Course Mediterranean forest health in the context of global change
Mediterranean forests are considered as a hotspot of global change impacts and risks. Promoting forest health and adaptation to global change is particularly challenging because of considerable uncertainty in future socio-economic and climatic scenarios, ecosystem responses, and impacts of forest management practices, among other factors. The course is jointly organized by the International Centre for Advanced Mediterranean Agronomic Studies (CIHEAM), through the Mediterranean Agronomic Institute of Zaragoza (CIHEAM Zaragoza), and the European Forest Institute (EFI), through the EFI’s Mediterranean Facility (EFIMED), with the collaboration of the International Union of Forest Research Organizations (IUFRO), through the Working Party 7.03.14. The course will be held online, with lectures and practical work delivered in live sessions by highly qualified lecturers from international organizations and from research centres and universities in different countries. The course will be held from 22 November to 1 December 2021. The 8 sessions will be held from 22 to 26 November and 29 November to 1 December, from 09:15h to 13:45h (Central European Time).
