Forest Management is a crucial element for a society aiming for net zero emission and biodiversity preservation. A careful and data-driven management of forests can secure and improve CO2 storage, increase the eco-resilience of the managed areas, reduce fire risks and secure a sustainable supply of biomass.For these and many other reasons, Forest management is a key factor to consider in our energy transition and should be duly considered by upcoming EU initiatives on forests and biodiversity.
Five EU funded projects are getting together to discuss from different angles and perspectives the importance of Forest Management, bringing up their experiences, results and recommendations.
The project LIFE RESILIENT FORESTS – Coupling water, fire and climate resilience with biomass production from forestry to adapt watersheds to climate change is co-funded by the LIFE Programme of the European Union under contract number LIFE 17 CCA/ES/000063.
