Climate Change Impacts and Adaptation in European Forests – EFI Policy Brief 6

The Policy Brief was compiled within the Models for Adaptive Forest Management (MOTIVE) project, a large-scale integrated project in the seventh Framework Programme of the EU. MOTIVE seeks to develop and evaluate strategies that can adapt forest management practices to balance multiple objectives under changing environmental conditions. The objectives of this policy brief are to outline the status of current knowledge on the climate change impacts and adaptation in European forests, and to identify the challenges that need to be addressed for successful responses in policy and management.
