Addressing Forestry and Agroforestry in National Adaptation Plans
The potential of forests and trees to mitigate global warming has long been the main focus of climate change discussions. But forests – and the livelihoods of the 1.6 billion people who depend on them – are also greatly threatened by increasing variability in temperature and precipitation, storms, pest outbreaks and more frequent and intense fires. In fact, the ability of forests and trees to adapt to these impacts will influence their ability to mitigate climate change.
The publication is designed to help countries integrate these considerations into adaptation planning through the National Adaptation Plan (NAP) process.
