The LIFE Climate Forest is set up as follows:
Project essence: Increasing the resilience of forest ecosystems through climate-smart management
Duration: September 2020 – August 2027
Partners: Staatsbosbeheer and de Bosgroepen
Budget: € 5,256,662, of which € 2,891,164 is granted by LIFE
The project shows what is needed to effectively implement climate-smart forest management; a small-scale and tree-oriented management type. Sharing knowledge is very important, thus LIFE Climate Forest aims to stimulate the development of climate-smart forest and to involve and inspire the forest management community by showing that it can be done and how to do it. We are looking at how a protective forest climate (continuous cover forestry) can help to increase resilience and what this requires in terms of management measures.
