Join the Yale Forest Forum Spring 2023 Speaker Series Webinar entitled “Smallholder planted trees and forests for climate, restored landscapes, and human livelihoods” held on Tuesdays from January 17-April 25th. This webinar series will focus on ways to harness the potential of smallholder planted forests and trees to contribute to the provision of environmental services, including addressing climate change, and livelihoods. In featuring guest lectures from a range of perspectives, disciplines, and geographies the webinar series will explore topics including the key success factors in the establishment and management of planted forests and trees outside forests by smallholders; the most promising models and practices; the management objectives pursued by smallholders; operational risks, financial risks, and vulnerabilities smallholders face; opportunities and business models linked to the transition to carbon-neutral economies and ecosystem restoration; and what can be done by other actors to support smallholders.
