On the other hand, healthy ecosystems and their services provide opportunities for sustainable economic prosperity while at the same time providing defence against the negative effects of climate change.</p> <p>Embracing the theme of Ecosystem Restoration, this virtual conference will bring together key experts in the fields of ecosystem restoration, conservation, and sustainable management from the Global South to share good practices and lessons learnt of ecosystem research and management, as well as to explore partnership opportunities to further collaborate on the topics of ecosystem restoration.</p> <p><strong>To attend the conference, kindly </strong><strong><a href="https://emea01.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fzoom.us%2Fmeeting%2Fregister%2FtJYtfuiprj4qGNIF5uQmMBChqeLYmkqkUBQG&amp;data=04%7C01%7C%7Ca6a0c3b6cf0f4af3180508d92427cc42%7C84df9e7fe9f640afb435aaaaaaaaaaaa%7C1%7C0%7C637580575630508050%7CUnknown%7CTWFpbGZsb3d8eyJWIjoiMC4wLjAwMDAiLCJQIjoiV2luMzIiLCJBTiI6Ik1haWwiLCJXVCI6Mn0%3D%7C1000&amp;sdata=Rvm5Xg30A%2BkBWURga6OviQF%2BCBJ0R%2FmMs4X%2Fvkg8zoY%3D&amp;reserved=0">click here</a> to </strong><strong>register</strong><strong> </strong></p> <p>For any other questions, please do not hesitate to contact Saifullah Dilazak  (<a href="mailto:saif.cccs@comsats.org">saif.cccs@comsats.org</a>).</p> </div> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-field-contactinfo field--type-text-long field--label-above"> <div class="field__label">Contact info</div> <div class="field__item"><p>Saifullah Khan Dilazak<br /> <a href="mailto:saif.cccs@comsats.org">saif.cccs@comsats.org</a><br /> Program Officer,<br /> COMSATS Center for Climate &amp;

It is <em><strong>free of charge for participants, but the total number of participants is limited to 40.</strong></em><br />  </p> <p><em><strong>Why develop research skills in systematic evidence evaluation?</strong></em></p> <p>The need for quantitative and qualitative scientific evidence for policy and management has significantly risen in recent years as the world is becoming increasingly interlinked with complex problems awaiting adequate policy and management decisions at all levels. This holds also true for the land use sector where forests and trees play key roles in the conservation, restoration and sustainable management of landscapes, particularly against the backdrop of the most pressing problems in the 21st century such as poverty, food security, transformation to a greener economy and sustainable development. In this context, it is important that sufficient evidence is generated from the body of globally available scientific research for the purpose of informing policy decisions and actions about forests and forest-related land-uses.<br />  </p> <p><em><strong>Who should participate?</strong></em></p> <p>Early and mid-career scientists from <strong>economically-disadvantaged countries in Africa, Asia and Latin America </strong>who are:</p> <ul type="disc"> <li>working on research issues related to forest landscape restoration,</li> <li>interested in learning how to apply elements used in a systematic review to make their own work more robust and reliable, and</li> <li>interested in meeting international peers in an open, collaborative environment with shared learning and peer-to-peer support.</li> </ul> <p> Please submit your interest by filling out the online form at: <a href="https://emea01.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.surveymonkey.com%2Fr%2FSystematicEvidenceEvaluationonFLR2021&amp;data=04%7C01%7C%7Cb1c215230e734ff49ddf08d8c8ebe2be%7C84df9e7fe9f640afb435aaaaaaaaaaaa%7C1%7C0%7C637480262733182855%7CUnknown%7CTWFpbGZsb3d8eyJWIjoiMC4wLjAwMDAiLCJQIjoiV2luMzIiLCJBTiI6Ik1haWwiLCJXVCI6Mn0%3D%7C1000&amp;sdata=EGDEklHppJeHrS6uP88K902G6yeYrBKvjpNHMTym%2BBk%3D&amp;reserved=0">https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/SystematicEvidenceEvaluationonFLR2021</a></p> <p>Deadline for submissions: <strong>28 February</strong>  <strong>2021</strong>, 23:59 GMT</p> <p> </p> <p>Links:</p> <ul type="disc"> <li>Detailed information on the online Training Workshop on Systematic Evidence Evaluation on Forest Landscape Restoration<strong>: </strong><a href="https://emea01.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.iufro.org%2Fscience%2Fspecial%2Fspdc%2Ftw%2Fonline-course-systematic-evidence-evaluation-2021%2F&amp;data=04%7C01%7C%7Cb1c215230e734ff49ddf08d8c8ebe2be%7C84df9e7fe9f640afb435aaaaaaaaaaaa%7C1%7C0%7C637480262733192850%7CUnknown%7CTWFpbGZsb3d8eyJWIjoiMC4wLjAwMDAiLCJQIjoiV2luMzIiLCJBTiI6Ik1haWwiLCJXVCI6Mn0%3D%7C1000&amp;sdata=6tDHe%2F%2BR%2Bk%2FDvsZU6yzRaVf%2B559eklORMNbPTIlHzpk%3D&amp;reserved=0">https://www.iufro.org/science/special/spdc/tw/online-course-systematic-evidence-evaluation-2021/</a></li> <li>Expression of Interest form: <a href="https://emea01.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.surveymonkey.com%2Fr%2FSystematicEvidenceEvaluationonFLR2021&amp;data=04%7C01%7C%7Cb1c215230e734ff49ddf08d8c8ebe2be%7C84df9e7fe9f640afb435aaaaaaaaaaaa%7C1%7C0%7C637480262733192850%7CUnknown%7CTWFpbGZsb3d8eyJWIjoiMC4wLjAwMDAiLCJQIjoiV2luMzIiLCJBTiI6Ik1haWwiLCJXVCI6Mn0%3D%7C1000&amp;sdata=K3qb2CL0cyz2%2FlcC13aZKEIyAR4TuqpK1DVLkgJPLYg%3D&amp;reserved=0">https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/SystematicEvidenceEvaluationonFLR2021</a></li> </ul> <p> </p> </div> <span class="field field--name-uid field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden"><span lang="" about="/user/294" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">abladesteven</span></span> <span class="field field--name-created field--type-created field--label-hidden">Thu, 02/04/2021 -
