Dear Researchers and Colleagues,

On behalf of the SFEM 2019 Organizing Committee, we cordially invite you to participate in the International Symposium of Sustainable Forest Ecosystem Management. The symposium will be held in Hokkaido, Japan, on 27]29 August 2019. The theme for SFEM 2019 is gAccelerating Innovation for Multiple Ecosystem Servicesh. Forests provide a variety of services and benefits to human society, while climate change poses a significant threat to forest ecosystems. Innovation in forest management is needed to effectively address the challenges and to promote multiple ecosystem services.

The symposium is an opportunity for the international forest management community to gather and for colleagues from Korea, Taiwan, Japan, and all the regions, to discuss the innovation of forest management. We plan to have three sessions; (1) management & planning, (2) monitoring & assessment, (3) policy & economics.

We are looking forward to welcoming you to Hokkaido, Japan!
