The Brahms Hall provided a pleasant atmosphere for the CIT lecture on climate change in the past, the current state of the climate system and possible future developments consistent with diverse pathways of mankind. This topic comprised the first part of the presentation, which was attended by about 50 foresters and major landowners. The second part dealt with hazard development corridors for Austrian forestry associated with these pathways and how decision-making procedures could be used to determine optimal options for action towards sustainable stocking of different regions with the most suitable tree species. The two-hour event (with lively discussions) was successfully concluded with a joint luncheon. The presentation can be found here.
