Leveraging the Power of Forests and Trees for Climate Resilience

Hybrid: Bute Hall

The role of forests and trees in providing multiple goods and services that contribute to the resilience and adaptive capacity of people and ecosystems has not yet gotten the attention it deserves in climate policy and action. In this session, FAO and CIFOR-ICRAF will invite diverse and intergenerational perspectives to highlight recent concrete examples of adaptation and resilience in the face of unprecedented climate change events, making strong connections to human and ecosystem health. Speakers will highlight the role of forests and trees as part of the solution to building resilient societies and a transformative economy of care for people and nature.
