FAO : Forests and Climate Change

 

The publication summarizes the work that the FAO is undertaking with its partners to assist countries to mitigate and adapt to climate change as it relates to forests, trees and the people who depend on them. It is organized in four of the five main areas of the FAO’s integrated approach to Sustainable Forest Management (SFM) : (1) monitoring and assessment ; (2) management planning and practices; (3) policy and governance ; (4) forest products , services and industry.  The fifth main area of work, intersectoral cooperation and coordination, cuts across the other four areas.
