Workshop International Workshop on Integrated Forest Insects and Pest Management & Forest Restoration
Date 6 April 2021 (Tuesday)
Time 9:00 AM to 17:30 PM (UTC/GMT +8, in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia)
Venue Virtual

Forest invasive species pose an increasing threat to the health, sustainability, and productivity of natural and planted forests in the Asia-Pacific region. These threats are closely associated with the ever-increasing movement of goods and people across the globe, exacerbated by the impacts of climate change. Tree mortality by invasive species often times exceeds the amount of damage caused by forest fires. Therefore, awareness-raising and capacity building on forest invasive species are important for policy and research implementation and development.

Co-organized by the Department of Forest Policy Implementation, Ministry of Environment and Tourism, Mongolia, and the IUFRO Research Group 1.10 in collaboration with FAO Asia-Pacific Forest Invasive Species Network, and sponsored by AFoCO and FAO, the workshop aims to share knowledge and experiences on Integrated Forest Insect Pests Management and the operational management of invasive forest insects, especially the Siberian moth (Dendrolimus sibiricus) in the Northeast Asian region (i.e. DPR of Korea, Russia, Mongolia, Kazakhstan, China and Republic of Korea).
