Notes from Beijing

This year’s New Generation Plantations (NGP) Encounter was held alongside the 4th International Congress on Planted Forests (ICPF 2018) in Beijing in October. ICPF is an international academic conference organized by the International Union of Forest Research Organizations (IUFRO), bringing together hundreds of forest researchers from all over the world. The theme of this year’s conference was “Planted forests – a solution for green development”. At these 'Notes from Beijing', we look at some of the major issues discussed during the NGP Encounter sessions.
