The FLARE (Forests & Livelihoods: Assessment, Research, and Engagement) network, supported by DFID and coordinated from the School of Natural Resources and Environment at the University of Michigan, is pleased to announce the Call for Abstracts for our 3rd annual meeting. Previous meetings (Paris 2015 and Edinburgh 2016) emerged as a unique space for presentations and discussions about forests and livelihoods. They created new relationships and collaborations, especially for younger researchers.

This year’s meeting is being organized in partnership with Stockholm University, Stockholm Environment Institute (SEI), the Swedish International Agricultural Network Initiative (SIANI), Forest, Climate and Livelihoods Research Network (FOCALI), and the Rights and Resources Initiative (RRI). It will continue to advance discussion and collaboration around the forest-livelihood relationship, with special attention to three core themes:

  1. 1. Forests, Livelihoods, and the SDGs;
  2. 2. Small and Medium Forest Enterprises and Livelihoods; and
  3. 3. Policy Ethics for Forests and Livelihoods.

  4. The meeting will also feature workshops on “Writing research proposals,” “Sharing research for impact,” and on the Livelihoods and Wellbeing app (LivWell) being developed by FLARE. One to two special issues will be developed using accepted abstracts and submitted meeting papers. We welcome participant engagement in proposal development. Abstracts for oral presentations, lightning talks, panel sessions, posters, and additional workshops must address a meeting theme and follow the abstract guidelines.

Registration deadline: September 8, 2017
