IUFRO ALL-Division-5 Conference "Forest Products and Environment – A Productive Symbiosis"

Taipei, Taiwan : The conference will serve as a forum for the exchange of knowledge and experience in forest products research at national and international levels.

Forests play a vital role for rural as well as urban populations all over the world. Forest resources are essential in providing multiple benefits to people and communities. The conservation and sustainable management of forest are closely linked with global issues such as food supply and environmental protection.


Scientific knowledge is needed to effectively address these issues globally and regionally and to provide the basis for political and commercial decisions. Close international cooperation in forest sciences and related disciplines, including efficient conversion to necessary forest products is required to enable forests to satisfy the manifold human needs on a sustainable basis.


This conference, organized by IUFRO Division 5 (Forest Products), will serve as a forum for the exchange of knowledge and experience in forest products research at national and international levels. Participants will discuss recent research progress, exchange information, and collaborate on research related to the conference theme of "Forest Products and Environment – A Productive Symbiosis."
