What’s on the policy horizon for forest ecosystem services?

After a tumultuous year of restriction and restraint, can renewed policies in the European Union’s policy framework for forests offer some hope?

A fitting moment, then, to bring policy makers and practitioners together in the second of the SINCERE Talks series to discuss what this might mean for Europe’s forests and for forest ecosystem services in particular.
