Join the Yale Forest Forum on Thursday, September 24 at 12pm EDT for the next webinar in our fall 2020 series Frontiers in Agroforestry, hosted by ELTI and the Yale Forests. YFF’s third virtual speaker is Dr. Rico Hübner, of the Technical University of Munich and the European Agroforestry Federation. Dr. Hübner’s research focuses on sustainable agriculture, renewable energies, and agricultural policy.
In his talk entitled, Agroforestry in Germany: Diverse systems between the CAP, climate change adaptation and innovative farmers, Dr. Hübner will share characteristics, advantages, and challenges for traditional and modern agroforestry systems in Germany. In the second part the most influential aspects of the governance system around agroforestry in Germany will be explained, with a focus on the European Common Agricultural Policy (CAP), its practical impacts at the level of the regions, and the use of agri-environmental and climate interventions.
Feel welcome to bring your lunch, as we would typically eat together during this longstanding lunch series. This session will be virtual and recorded.
