IBFRA 2023

28-31 Aug 2023 | Helsinki, Finland


The boreal forest, which is the second most extensive terrestrial biome on earth, is experiencing environmental changes at rates that are unprecedented. Changing climates are increasing disturbances such as wildfires or insect outbreaks. Many boreal ecosystems are shifting to new ecological states, affecting the people who are relying on these ecosystems for subsistence living, cultural practices, economic development or climate stability. This is why the main theme of the 20th IBFRA conference is Climate resilient and sustainable forest management.


The conference week will feature keynote speeches, parallel sessions on the sub-themes, networking opportunities and trainings. Friday 1 September is reserved for excursions, side events and project meetings.

The sub-themes of the conference are

1) Understanding linkages between ecosystem processes and management

2) From data acquisition to knowledge creation

3) Gameful forest interaction

4) Decision support tools and solutions for sustainable forestry

5) Science-policy interphase
