The Organizing Committee of the 11th Forestry and Agriculture Greenhouse Gas Modeling Forum is pleased to announce that registration for the 2024 Forum will be held March 4th – 7th, 2024, is now open.

The Forum this year will be a hybrid conference. We are planning for two and half days of sessions which will take place from March 4th to 7th, 2024 (with conference substance starting the morning of March 5th).

About The Forum

The Forum's purpose is to bring together leading researchers from around the world for dialogue and collaboration around biophysical and economic modeling and empirical analysis of greenhouse gas (GHG) mitigation, carbon sequestration, resilience, and bioenergy potential in the agriculture and forestry sectors.

The Forum provides an important and unique venue for bringing together agriculture and forestry modelers from U.S. and Canadian government agencies, universities, and research institutions to share ideas and foster collaboration. There is a high level of market integration between these countries, making it important to accurately reflect trade and other linkages. In addition, modeling techniques developed in applications for one country are often readily transferable to the other.

The ultimate objective is to provide information useful for public and private strategic analysis and planning of domestic and international policy options for carbon sequestration and GHG mitigation options in the two sectors, as well as looking at the potential role of biomass for bioenergy production and at issues related to climate change impacts and adaptation.

Forum Organizers

The Modeling Forum is sponsored by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. The Organizing Committee is made up of individuals from the U.S., Canadian, and Mexican governments, as well as universities and research institutes.
