IUFRO Spotlight #43: Helping forests and people adapt to changing times and climes
The IUFRO Task Force on Forest Adaptation and Restoration under Global Change aims to compile and improve globally available scientific and technical knowledge and experiences on how to achieve optimal adaptation of forests and forest landscapes in the face of global change. It will achieve this by identifying knowledge gaps, comparing existing activities and techniques and elaborating best practice approaches.
Despite all the alarming signals for the forests, the adaptation challenges may also be seen as opportunities. Proper management and expansion of the world's forests is perhaps the most powerful tool to mitigate climate change.
