Researchers are invited to the Third CLCR Annual Conference, to be held on 24 October 2014 at the University’s conference facilities in Stamford Court, Oadby.

The conference will discuss the state of knowledge of landscape and climate research with a focus on deforestation and forest degradation. The aim of the conference is provide an opportunity for the discussion of exciting and new research in any aspect of Deforestation and Forest Degradation. We would particularly like to encourage new academic staff members, doctoral and postdoctoral workers to communicate their latest results.

In the afternoon there will be an opportunity to view the poster presentations and participate in breakout groups on the themes of:

1. Participatory methods to understand deforestation and forest degradation – bringing together social, economic and physical research approaches.

2. Current research challenges for the forestry sector.

3. Geospatial data requirements and future monitoring to support REDD+.

The sessions are designed to stimulate discussion about current issues in deforestation and forest degradation, and generate ideas ideas for future cooperative research.
