Climate change and desertification are threatening our agriculture land! Are there any innovative proposals for saving the Mediterranean landscapes from further land abandonment and degradation from climate change?

About the Event

This third concluding online event aims to map the different aspects and initiatives on productive reforestation, agro-climatic zoning and multi-functional landscapes in Greece. Target groups are government officers, green-minded stakeholders, NGO’s, local-regional authorities and experts. There will be presentations on behalf of the speakers on various topics and a first attempt to derive comprehensive findings. These findings together with the first two events will be compiled in a booklet at the end of the project with concrete recommendations for the forestry sector.



This event is part of the Green European Foundations project Deforestation and Climate Change with the support of FREDA and the Green Institute Greece.
