World Congress Silvo-pastoral Systems 2016 (Evora, Portugal)

Abstract submission is now open and closes on November 30.

The congress aim is to gather researchers from different disciplines, practitioners and policy makers at different governance levels that deal with the management and sustainability of silvo-pastoral systems. In this way the congress will create a fertile context to progress through interdisciplinarity research approaches that can help translate scientific knowledge into new adaptive management solutions, and thus bridge from science to practice. The aim is also to gather and compare knowledge from silvo-pastoral systems around the world, which share drought as a limiting factor, so that they can be discussed and evaluated.

Researchers, practitioners, both private and from the public sector, as well as policy makers, are all highly welcome to World Congress Silvo-Pastoral Systems 2016. More information:
