Brown bag lunch presentation by WWF-Turkey about their experience on climate change adaptation of the Mediterranean forests

Event date : 
Thu, 07/12/2017
Place : 
Gland, Swiss

Join WWF-Turkey for a brown bag lunch presentation on Thursday the 7th of December to hear about their experience on climate change adaptation of the Mediterranean forests in Turkey and to exchange ideas on the topic.

The Adaptation of Mediterranean Forests in Turkey to Climate Change Project, carried out by WWF-Turkey in cooperation with the Turkish General Directorate of Forestry and Nature Conservation Center, aims at contributing to the long term preservation of the Mediterranean forests in Turkey and their capacity to deliver ecosystem services in the face of climate change.

During the project’s initial phase, potential impacts of climate change in the Taurus Forests were modelled; management recommendations were devised and integrated into the management plans and specific site adaptation measures were implemented at pilot sites. The second phase of the project aims at increasing the sustainability of the project outcomes in cooperation with partners such as forestry research institutions and universities, to establish a solid understanding of climate change adaptation in forestry in Turkey and at the Mediterranean level.

Representatives from WWF-Turkey, the Turkish General Directorate of Forestry and Nature Conservation Center as well as University of Jaen will be present during the presentation to share their perspectives, answer questions and discuss possible cooperation opportunities regarding climate change adaptation and the Mediterranean forests.
