PEN-CAFoRR

COST-Action

Pan-European Network for Climate Adaptive Forest Restoration and Reforestation

Started in 2020

Global Impact

The PEN-CAFoRR network of experts from Europe and beyond responding to challenges by addressing the entire cycle of forest restoration and reforestation in different ecosystems, by broadening the dissemination of knowledge, and by facilitating an increased scale of planning and implementation of CAFoRR programs.

Many international efforts are aimed at restoring deforested and degraded lands. Compared to existing efforts, a vital and innovative approach of PEN-CAFoRR Action is in assembling a wide international network of experts into interdisciplinary teams working intensively in Action’s Working Groups to meet the specific research objectives. PEN-CAFoRR Action’s activities will increase the mobility of researchers, especially young scientists with early-development careers and scientists from institutions with limited resources.
