Research for a green, healthy and resilient future with forests and trees: Launching a new research-for-development partnership

Building a green, healthy and resilient future with forests and trees requires strong knowledge to anticipate future changes and shocks, and their impacts on ecosystems, economies and livelihoods. Such knowledge also provides a basis for the development of strong, systemic, and better-coordinated policies to prepare for and address these changes.

The purpose of this session is to discuss the role of forest and tree research for development in building a green, healthy, and resilient future. Forests and trees, like never before, are called on to play an important role in achieving many different objectives.

The session will focus on key insights from a decade of research within the now-concluded CGIAR research program on Forests, Trees and Agroforestry (FTA) (2011-2021), as well as key insights by the International Union of Forest Research Organizations (IUFRO) on current major forest research frontiers.

Speakers will investigate emerging issues and key research and implementation gaps that lie ahead of us along the forestry research-to-development spectrum. Specific attention will be devoted to exploring what it takes for science to make an impact, focusing on science for decision making processes, and how knowledge is constructed with – and appropriated by – the various categories of actors.

During the session, the new FTA partnership will be launched and presented.
