EcoAgriculture Partners and IUCN Netherlands have launched a trial version of the Landscape Investment and Finance Toolkit (LIFT), aimed at helping multi-stakeholder platforms access financing for integrated landscape management plans. The toolkit comprises a set of three modules that guide users through the process of defining, developing, and finding finance for their landscape priorities.
The landlocked mountainous nation will become the second country in the world to have a national agroforestry policy, with support from the World Agroforestry Centre and the Climate Technology Centre and Network (CTCN) The World Agroforestry Centre (ICRAF)...

A group of scientists has published a Letter exploring the use of forest biomass to produce energy, ahead of the European Parliament vote on the EU Renewable Energy Directive on 17 January. Download the letter as a pdf There is heated debate about the best way to realize the potential of our forests in the fight against climate change. In the EU, the debate is currently very much focused on questioning the use of forest biomass to produce bioenergy. Our view[1] is that bioenergy from sustainably...
In December 2017, the One Planet Summit and a ‘Climate Finance Day’ resulted in a high number of climate financing-related announcements. Nigeria issued a US$26.9 million sovereign green bond, becoming the fourth country in the world to do so, after Poland, France and Fiji. The GCF opened a call for concept notes and funding proposals in response to its pilot programme for REDD+ results-based payments.

Three months after its official launch, the Land Degradation Neutrality (LDN) Fund has raised approximately 30% of its target capitalization of US$300 million. The LDN Fund, promoted by the UN Convention to Combat Desertification (UNCCD) and Mirova, an affiliate of Natixis Investment Managers, aims to accelerate achievement of SDG target 15.3, or a land degradation neutral world by 2030.
Kučerová J, Konôpková A, Pšidová E, Kurjak D, Jamnická G, Slugenová K, Gömöry D, Ditmarová L ADAPTIVE VARIATION IN PHYSIOLOGICAL TRAITS OF BEECH PROVENANCES IN CENTRAL EUROPE Abstract : Current climate changes can led to a decline of local beech populations fully adapted to previous climate conditions. In this context, the issue of variation in adaptive traits becomes important. A field experiment with 18-year-old trees of Fagus sylvatica L. was conducted on provenance plot located in Tále (Central...

We analyze economic perspectives of forest adaptation to risk attributes, caused mostly by climate change. We construct a database with 89 systematically chosen articles, dealing simultaneously with climate, adaptation, risk and economy. We classify the database with regard to 18 variables bearing on the characteristics of the paper, the description of the risk and the adaptation strategy, the topic and the corresponding results. To achieve a “high level-of-evidence”, we realize a multiple correspondence...
This study assesses vulnerability to climate change and local adaption strategies in the Kribi-Campo coastal area. Variables of exposure, sensitivity ...
Understanding the impact of climate change on range shifts in climatically suitable habitats of tree species is important for national afforestation planning, which can enhance the adaptation of tree plantation to climate change through movement of tree to follow suitable climatic conditions. Here, we overlap the current and future climate-related ranges of Chinese sea buckthorn (Hippophae rhamnoides subsp. sinensis), an important tree used for afforestation in China, to estimate the range shift...
