FLARE Annual Meeting 2016

FLARE (Forests and Livelihoods: Assessment, Research, and Engagement) network is organising its annual meeting in Edinburgh, U.K. in December 2–5, 2016. There is a call for abstracts open until July 10, 2016.

FLARE aims (1) to advance cutting-edge knowledge and practices regarding forest-based livelihoods, governance, biodiversity, and climate change; (2) increase dialogue and interactions between practitioners and researchers/scholars; and (3) create a global community of practice on forest-livelihood interactions. The meeting will focus on the approaches, methods, tools, and indicators to assess how, where, and why governing forest and forest mosaics for improving livelihoods works, and how it can be strengthened.
