On the 25 March we had two speakers on the topic of forestry:

Title:On the role of forests and the forest sector for climate change mitigation in Sweden

Dr Raphaël Pélissier

Title:What is the actual performance of large-scale forest biomass mapping models?

We had an interesting discussion about the paths forward to measuring emissions in the LULUCF sector in relation to other sectors, the nuances of conserving forests, helping biodiversity and reaching climate goals and the challenges of estimating biomass in tropical forests!
