Climate Adaptation and Forest Management Working Paper and Documentation of Stakeholder Dialogue

"KomPass - Climate Impacts and Adaptation in Germany“ at the Federal Environmental Agency (UBA) hosted a one-day stakeholder dialogue on the 17th of November 2015 to address the topic "Forest Management and Climate Change". Responsible for the conceptualisation and implementation of the dialogue was the IÖW. In total 33 participants from ministries, subordinated agencies and applied research as well as representatives from public and non-public forest ownership and associations discussed current measures and strategies for the adaptation of forest management to climate change. For the preparation and wrap-up of the dialogue, the IÖW provided a working paper prior to the dialogue and a documentation afterwards. These documents address, on the one hand, expected climate changes that will effect domestic forest growth as well as relevant political adaptation activities and first approaches for action. On the other hand, major statements of the different keynote speeches and central discussion results of the dialogue are documented.
