Forestry: bridge to the future International Conference in Sofia, Bulgaria, 6-9 May 2015

Friday, March 27 , 2015 6611

UEF supports this important conference in Sofia and will be represented there by Thomas Baschny ,UEF Secretary.

The Conference is dedicated to the 90th anniversary of higher forestry education in Bulgaria and is organized by the University of Forestry, Sofia (UFS) and Faculty of Forestry (FFS).

The recent studies have shown that due to many circumstances such as climate change, social and economic factors, Forestry is becoming very important for the environment and human. As more scientific information about global processes accumulates, climate change is emerging as perhaps the greatest environmental challenge of the 21st century. What is more, the air pollution, soil degradation, desertification and deforestation are intricately intertwined with and all contribute to climate change, necessitating a comprehensive approach to a solution.

Climate change and forests are intrinsically linked: forests currently contribute about one-sixth of global carbon emissions when cleared, overused or degraded; they react sensitively to a changing climate; when managed sustainably, they produce wood fuels as a benign alternative to fossil fuels; and finally, forests have the potential to absorb about one-tenth of global carbon emissions projected for the first half of this century into their biomass, soils and products and store them. Therefore, it is of particular importance to study Forestry and share information and good practices among the scientists and professionals from different countries.
