Welcome to ICP Forests

A programme aiming at a comprehensive compilation of information on the condition of forests in Europe and beyond

The International Co-operative Programme on Assessment and Monitoring of Air Pollution Effects on Forests (ICP Forests) was launched in 1985 under the Convention on Long-range Transboundary Air Pollution (Air Convention, formerly CLRTAP) of the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE).

ICP Forests monitors forest condition in Europe at two monitoring intensity levels:

The Level I monitoring is based on around 6000 observation plots on a systematic transnational grid of 16 x 16 km throughout Europe and beyond to gain insight into the geographic and temporal variations in forest condition.

The Level II intensive monitoring comprises around 500 plots in selected forest ecosystems with the aim to clarify cause-effect relationships.

At present 42 countries in Europe and beyond participate in ICP Forests.

8th Conference of the International Nitrogen Initiative (INI 2020), Berlin, 3-7 May 2020

The 8th conference of the International Nitrogen Initiative (INI 2020) will be the meeting point for scientists from all over the world who are dealing with reactive nitrogen compounds in agriculture, industry, traffic, soil, water and air.

At INI 2020, scientists and delegates are invited to present findings on

  • Sustainable agriculture, food and nutrition systems, in relation to effective nitrogen management,
  • threats for health, environment and biodiversity and solutions to combat these nitrogen-driven effects,
  • Observations of global challenges, nitrogen fluxes and interactions between different drivers and pressure,
  • closing the nitrogen cycle through innovations for sustainable N management and
  • Integrated nitrogen science and policy approaches.

INI 2020 is hosted…
