The Interdisciplinary Perspectives SIG Webinar Lecture 2023
Registration Deadline: 19 November 2023
The Interdisciplinary Perspectives Special Interest Group (IPSIG) will once again be holding its annual webinar lecture on Wednesday, 22 November 2023, 13:00-14:30 (British time).
Our speaker is Dr. Martha O'Hagan, Associate Professor of Finance, at Trinity Business School, Trinity College Dublin.
Martha will deliver a lecture on ‘An Investigation into the Financial Incentives for Afforestation in Ireland’. Despite having been over 80% afforested many centuries ago, Ireland now has one of the lowest levels of forest cover in Europe, 11% compared to a European average of 36%, and of that 11%, only 2% is comprised of native species, the remainder of mono-species plantations of non-native species such Sitka Spruce. Government policy to increase afforestation has not worked, with less than 10% of the annual planting target being achieved each year.
Registration is free via your BAFA membership account.
