Welcome to the homepage of IFPM5!

The International Forest Policy Meeting (IFPM) is a biannual event addressing forest and forest-related issues from a social science perspective and bringing together scholars and research from different parts of the world.

The 5th IFPM aims to provide an open environment to present, interact and critically discuss new insights to wicked problems. The conference will facilitate the exchange of the latest research in the field.
