UPDATE: Check here the report of the Interregional Workshop Wild harvested nuts and berries in times of new pests, diseases and climate change.
The scoping seminar of the Wild Nuts and Berries iNet put forward priorities themes to focus INCREDIBLE actions. One of the topics highlighted was the “Long-term resource availability in a context of climate change”. Wild nuts and berries are facing several issues that threaten the evenness of their provision. Namely climate change and different exotic pests and diseases are of paramount relevance for the successful management of these products. The present workshop aims to provide helpful insights for both public and private stakeholders about the current situation, the effect of climate change, the damages caused by pest and diseases and how to combat them.
