EFI Policy Brief looks at Climate Change Impacts and Adaptation in European Forests

The new EFI Policy Brief “Climate Change Impacts and Adaptation in European Forests” outlines the status of current knowledge on the climate change impacts and adaptation in European forests, and identifies the challenges that need to be addressed for successful responses in policy and management.

“One of the key issues, which we cannot afford to overlook, is the role of forest owners and practitioners”, says Dr. Marja Kolström from EFI. “They need information, support and training to be able to modify their management practises.”

The Policy Brief is based on the research carried out in the MOTIVE- project (Models for Adaptive Forest Management). MOTIVE investigates adaptive management strategies that address climate and land use change. It also examines the impacts of these changes with respect to a broad range of forest goods and services.

EFI Policy Brief 6, Climate Change Impacts and Adaptation in European Forests by Marja Kolström, Terhi Vilén and Marcus Lindner is available as a pdf-file here.
