Event Details

There is a lot of talk about the importance of tree planting and in reducing deforestation, in dealing with climate crisis.  Scottish Government have ambitious tree planting targets, and COP26 will include discussions on how to reduce deforestation world-wide. But what is the best way of achieving this?  Is this just about emissions or are there other things at stake?  Where do people fit into woodland restoration, rewilding and forest conservation? This conversation between Alan McDonnal of Trees for Life, Veronique Walraven of Morven Community Woodlands, and Sarobidy Rakotonarivo, a research fellow at Bangor University based in Madagascar, will explore how forest conservation and woodland restoration can best deliver climate mitigation, the co-benefits that arise, and the role of local communities in delivering them.
