    Joint Workshop: Managing Biotic Threats in Forests – Lessons Learned from Bark Beetle Calamities

    May 30, 2023 - June 1, 2023

    Joint Workshop: Managing Biotic Threats in Forests - Lessons Learned from Bark Beetle Calamities

    czcExtreme heat events and droughts have intensified due to climate change, and bark beetle outbreaks have reached unprecedented levels in conifer forests challenging traditional management approaches in production forests and leading to increasing public and political awareness. The need for coordinated international actions and a more comprehensive management framework also recognizing the social dimension of forest disturbances is growing.

    Therefore, the Ministry of Agriculture of the Czech Republic and FOREST EUROPE are organizing a joint workshop in order to exchange knowledge on the best practices and allow for the adoption and transfer of innovative solutions while establishing cooperation and strong partnerships across pan-Europe to prevent and better control biotic threats such as bark beetle outbreaks.

    The workshop is part of FOREST EUROPE’s work towards the implementation of a pan-European Forest Risk Knowledge Facility (FoRISK) to support forest’s adaptation to changing climatic and site conditions as well as to enhance the resilience and mitigation potential of forests at a pan-European level.
