IMPACT project - Integrated Management of forest Pests Addressing Climate Trends

Climate change and forest pests - new knowledge, new solutions

Protecting current and future forests: coping with pests, pathogens and climate change

Dear Colleagues,

You are invited to join us for the final conference of the IMPACT project at the Guinness Storehouse, Dublin where the latest advances in the fight against forest pests developed by the project team will be revealed.

IMPACT, the EU Interreg IVA Project which has been assessing how forest pests are likely to respond to climate change and developing Integrated Pest Management programmes to combat those pests, has made significant progress in identifying new ways of reducing the threats.
