Follow workshop on forests and climate online

The international workshop "​Forests and the climate – manage for maximum wood production or leave the forest as a carbon sink?" is available online. 
​This conference is organized by The Royal Swedish Academy of Agriculture and Forestry, The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences, and The Royal Swedish Academy of Engineering Sciences. It consists of an expert workshop (one and a half days) followed by a half-day session during which the outcomes of the workshop will be presented and discussed in a forum that includes not only scientists and engineers, but also industry representatives, government officials, policy-makers, and politicians.

Participants from Chalmers are: 
  • Introduction to the expert workshop: working procedures and expected outcome: 
    Göran Berndes, Professor, Physical Resource Theory. March 12, 10:30. 
  • Bioenergy in the energy system – now and in the future: 
    Filip Johnsson, Professor, Energy Technology, Sweden. March 13, 11.00.  

The purpose of this conference is to establish a shared view regarding some basic principles concerning the role of forests in climate mitigation and adaptation. This is needed for scientists to provide good advice to policy-makers. While mitigation and adaptation are two sides of the same coin, special focus will in this conference be placed on forests and forest management for climate change mitigation.
