Forests and trees play a major role on water cycles and cooler temperatures, contributing to food security and climate change adaptation. In recent decades, the climate change discourse has looked at forests and trees mostly as carbon stocks and carbon sinks, but now scientists are calling for more attention on the relation between trees and water in climate change. A new publication and a symposium try to shed new light on the debate.
Presentation by Maria Brockhaus, Professor of International Forest Policy at the University of Helsinki, Finland, at a workshop on ‘Sharing insights across REDD+ countries: Opportunities and obstacles for effective, efficient, and equitable REDD+ carbon and non-carbon results’, held from 21-23 February 2017 in Naypyidaw, Myanmar. Forests, Climate Change and REDD+: A brief introduction from Center for International Forestry Research (CIFOR) The post Forests, Climate Change and REDD+: A brief introduction...
In West Africa, climate variations and droughts have always affected livelihoods but have also triggered adaptation strategies. A better understanding ...
The European Environment Agency (EEA) has released ‘Climate Change, Impacts and Vulnerability in Europe 2016’, a report assessing past and projected climate change and its impacts on communities and ecosystems in Europe, including in its mountain regions. The Mountain Partnership Secretariat (MPS) has launched the ‘Mountain Education Database’ to help users find courses on mountains in their area of interest and compare these courses with others offered by different universities.

Abstract Background The productive potential of European species of forest tree assumes particular importance in the context of populations adapting to accelerating climatic change. Genotype-environment interaction (G × E) was studied to determine Picea abies (L.) H.Karst. (Norway spruce) inter-population variation, characterising their adaptability to the growing conditions in north-eastern Poland. The data were analysed from 22 populations evaluated in four experimental sites based on 5-year...
UNFCCC Sets May Session's Agendas IISD - News - 3 weeks ago
The provisional agendas for the May meetings of the SBI, the SBSTA and the APA have been released. The APA’s agenda is the same as the last few official UNFCCC sessions because the APA is resuming its first session rather than starting a new one. Much of the SBSTA´s work consists in ongoing technical work, including on agriculture, science and review, response measures and the Nairobi work programme on impacts, vulnerability and adaptation to climate change.
By Amy Cruz, originally published at ICRAF’s Agroforestry World Blog A monitoring system has the potential to help governments, research organizations and other groups detect changes in landscapes, such as deforestation and establishment of oil palm plantations. Representatives from government agencies, research organizations and academe in the Philippines attended a forum on the near real-time monitoring of forest landscapes through […] The post What stories can a pixel tell?: monitoring landscape...
Bamboo is a vast untapped development resource that provides climate-smart mitigation and adaptation solutions. Below we quantify the plant’s potential for green economy development. 1.21 meters: the maximum daily growth of a bamboo pole The plant’s rapid establishment and growth allow frequent harvesting, which limits exposure to disaster, and allows farmers to flexibly adapt their […]
Bamboo is a vast untapped development resource that countries can use to provide climate-smart mitigation and adaptation solutions. It should be a key input to the UN’s new Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) – specifically SDG 13. To combat climate change, bamboo is a core resource for landscape-focused approaches, providing countries and development partners with a […]
