Annual REUFIS meeting: Invasive pathogens in the REUFIS region & the role of nurseries Date: 16-18 Oct. 2018 Place: Center for Advanced Training of Forest Workers in Zhdanovichi (http://rucles.by), close to Minsk, Belarus.
Combatting forest invasive species in the region of Europe and Central Asia is often hampered by a lack of information and its dissemination. The members of the REUFIS Network identified the need for a network or “platform” where scientists, managers and policy-makers can share information and experiences and coordinate forest invasive species activities and programmes within the region and beyond. Establishing information exchange networks and working groups on forest invasive species helps to raise awareness, develop databases, facilitate exchange of information and strengthen institutional capacity in the respective region. The 2nd annual meeting of the REUFIS network contributed to this end.
