The Society for Ecological Restoration (SER) will host its seventh biennial World Conference in Foz do Iguassu, Paraná, Brazil from 27 August to 1 September 2017 in partnership with the Brazilian Society for Ecological Restoration (SOBRE) and the Ibero-American & Caribbean Society for Ecological Restoration (SIACRE). The conference is expected to draw more than 1,500 delegates from around the world embodying professional and cultural diversity of all stakeholders in the restoration enterprise—from researchers, practitioners and policymakers to artists, educators, students and community leaders. Delegates will come from all sectors—government agencies, intergovernmental organizations, NGOs and the private sector.
The overarching theme of SER2017 is Linking Science and Practice for a Better World, and bridging the gap between these two modes of engagement in the restoration process is the perennial challenge in the work to repair degraded ecosystems.
CIFOR Forest Management and Restoration Team Leader Manuel Guariguata and associate researchers will take part in several sessions at SER 2017, bringing the latest scientific research and insights on the restoration discussion.
