OVERALL PROGRAMME

The International Commission on Poplars and Other Fast-Growing Trees Sustaining People and the Environment (IPC) will hold its twenty-sixth Session in Rome, Italy at FAO from 6-9 October 2020, with three days of dedicated scientific and technical discussions to take place around the formal Session.

The theme for this Session is “The role of Salicaceae and other fast-growing trees in sustainable wood supplies and climate change mitigation”.  An important topic in this Session will be the IPC reform, as the Commission seeks pathways to apply the successful approaches and networks developed by the IPC to new species and in new geographies.
