Forests in a time of climate change

This workshop aims to stimulate a broad discussion on secondary forests as a category in a time of climate change. Smallholders are often key actors in secondary forest management and forest regeneration is central to their agricultural practices. The invited speakers will present forests, forestry and land use changes in relation to smallholders from different disciplinary perspectives.
