Climate Change Impacts on European Forests and Response Options
The IUFRO-Mondi Partnership established in 2021 aims to establish a science-business platform to better understand climate change impacts and to identify response measures in line with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Central activities of the partnership include Think Tank meetings aiming to provide information on and access to the latest data on climate change and to identify options for response measures to mitigate risks.
Latest research shows that the Pan-European region will face further and increasingly rapid and widespread climate change, significantly impacting forests and the entire forest sector alike. Projections of climate change scenarios show that heat and drought extremes will cause increased risk of disturbances, including widespread bark-beetle outbreaks and forest fires. The first Think Tank elaborated on these aspects along with other key impacts likely from climate change.
