What Climate Strategy for European Forests? Rethinking their contribution to climate neutrality – Fern
What does the latest research say about how forests can help fight climate change?
The European Union (EU) has pledged to become carbon neutral by 2050. This will require us to both drastically reduce greenhouse gas emissions and to increase carbon dioxide removals. Many countries rely heavily on scenarios that substitute fossil fuels with wood products, which reduces the forest carbon sink. Several recently published research papers have found that introducing more resilient forestry practices can help achieve societal and environmental goals.
This webinar will discuss the studies and ways to guide the forestry sector to support the transition to a fossil-free society. It will bring together leading scientists and researchers from around Europe to present cutting-edge knowledge on how forests and forest biomass use needs to change in the time of climate crisis.
