Upcoming Conferences

Yale Chapter of the International Society of Tropical Foresters (ISTF) 28th Annual Conference: “Rethinking Restoration and Recovery: Landscapes of the Past, Present, and Future in the Tropics.” January 27 – 29, 2022. (online

Coinciding with the global pandemic, what insights can we gain from concurrent conversations  around the next decade of restoration and recovery from COVID-19? The global pandemic is still  a pressing threat to most of the world, including many tropical countries. Throughout this crisis,  forests have functioned as a safety net for forest peoples and have also seen accelerated rates  of deforestation and degradation. The next decade holds numerous challenges and opportunities  for reflection and action in tropical forests. It is important to ask ourselves what kind of change  are we looking for?
ISTF 2022 will facilitate a space for academics, practitioners, activists, policy makers, artists,  journalists, and community leaders from all corners of the world to consider these notions of restoration and recovery in the coming decade. The conference will weave together  historically, ecologically, and socially relevant perspectives on timescales of threat, degradation,  and recovery.
