Expert consultation for development of guidelines to integrate climate change considerations into forest management plans
This meeting hosted by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the UN (FAO) and the International Tropical Timber Organization (ITTO). The objective of the meeting is to provide guidance on the development of guidelines to help forest managers to analyze the potential for and to implement adaptation and mitigation actions in forest management plans. The meeting is a part of a larger effort to develop guidelines that will help forest managers decide how best to take adaptation measures; to capitalize on mitigation opportunities; and to anticipate secondary impacts of climate change on the forest.
