The IUFRO 2018 Posadas Conference on 'Adaptive Management for Forested Landscapes in transformation' will highlight the accelerated environmental changes in this era of the Anthropocene. The Conference will address issues arising from the transformation of forests in response to the pressures of globalization, population growth, resource scarcity and ecological degradation. It will also discuss how biodiversity is essential to human well-being, and the loss of species and degradation of ecosystems, as well as the status of the achievement of global goals on biodiversity.
The Conference will also consider the ecological, economic, and functional values of landscapes with a view to improving planning and decision-making; and operational solutions that can reconcile biodiversity conservation in the light of increasing demands on natural resources and land.
