The climate scenarios anticipate a near future with higher temperatures and lower precipitation, with a greater incidence of major droughts and more frequent and intense forest fires. Preserving the variety of services that forests provide us requires taking actions to improve their adaptive capacity, accompanying the process of change that will inevitably occur, to reduce risks.

To do this, given the enormous extension of territory to be managed, and the diversity of existing situations, it will be necessary to use different tools, complementary to each other, and designed according to the characteristics of each place.

Among these tools, forestry will undoubtedly be one of the most important. The accumulated experience in forest management can be directed towards adaptation to climate change, in a manner compatible with production objectives, or biodiversity conservation.

In this fourth webinar, several approaches to forestry with objectives of adaptation to climate change are presented.
