IBFRA was formed in 1991 to promote and coordinate research to increase the understanding of the role of the boreal forest in the global environment.
The boreal forest represents about 30% of the global forest area, contains more surface freshwater than any other biome, and has large tracts of unmanaged forests.
Connects researchers, encourages innovation and knowledge-sharing, and assists in generating partnerships and connections with boreal forest research institutions.
