This Friday, December 14th, ends the Climate Change Conference COP24 in Katowice, and the Confederation of European Forest owners has used this opportunity to launch a Joint statement emphasizing the active role that forests and the forest sector should play in climate change mitigation and adaptation. From the LIFE CLIMARK project we give support to the idea that “a solution to counteract the negative tendencies posed by climate change is sustainable adaptive forest management which creates synergies between climate change mitigation and adaptation needs”. Thus, “Sustainably managed forests will become more resilient against natural disturbances, such as storms and fires, have a higher productivity leading to higher carbon sequestration and in result providing more raw material to substitute carbon intensive material and energy.”
Regarding this latter point, we also want to share the new report “From Science to policy núm.7” edited by EFI, on the substitution effects of wood-based products in climate change mitigation.
