- biodiversity management in production forests
- forestry and reindeer herding
SNS and the Forest Bioeconomy Network hereby offers you a new opportunity to apply for funding for a conference or workshop, for writing a larger application for research funding or design policy recommendations for example. The activities should be useful for the Nordic community and should include knowledge exchange across national borders.
Biodiversity is crucial
One of our special focuses this time is biodiversity management in production forests. We want networks including experts on biodiversity and forest management that can provide insightful facts, new solutions and guidance to the Nordic forest sector regarding management that balance biodiversity and production in forests where forestry is practiced.
Forestry and reindeer herding – hand in hand
The other special focus is forestry and reindeer herding. To prevent the decline of available ground lichen for reindeer, we call for networks that study the effects of forest management on winter grazing resources for reindeer. Networks could also study the interaction between forestry and reindeer husbandry e.g. the intersection between reindeer-adapted policies and forest management.
Nordic forestry is the essence
But we also welcome applications from networks focusing on other aspects of Nordic forests and forestry. If your network relates to any of these strategy goals, don’t hesitate to apply:
– Maintenance and increased utilisation of forest-based ecosystem services
– Climate change mitigation and adaptation
– Meeting the demands of sustainable forest management in a growing bioeconomy
