FAO is collaborating with partners to enhance the role of forests and trees in climate change adaptation policy and action. This session will highlight a new FAO technical paper that discusses the policy implications of a set of principles for leveraging forests and trees for transformational adaptation. Speakers will highlight key messages and case studies from the paper in the context of COP27, including the potential of forests and trees to contribute to mitigation and adaptation synergies, and disaster risk management.
