Changing climate conditions have a noticeable influence on forests. Forest management must make effective adaptations with a very long-term perspective, taking account of climate change. Forests are not only affected by climate change: they also play a key role in adaptation measures and climate protection.
In its report (only available in German) CIPRA presents the effects from climate change to forestry, formulates its demands and shows good practice examples for climate friendly forest management in the Alps. Healthy, natural forests have to be the response to climate change!
