Adaption strategies in forestry under global climate change impact (ASFORCLIC)


Forests play an important role in the European carbon cycle, but they are also vulnerable to climate change. The project will focus on the forest wood value chain and will work to investigate the effects of the changing environment on forests’ tree species spectrum, structural composition, health and growth and analyse different adaptation strategies. Within the project, three working groups (WGs) are planned: (1) forest production and environment; (2) wood quantity and qualities; (3) market, economics and policy.

WG1 focuses on the effects of the changing environment on forests’ tree species spectrum and structural composition, health and growth, and analyses different adaption strategies. WG2 studies the utilization of new wood-material under anticipated changes in wood assortments and properties. New material can be adapted and modified, or even be used for completely new products on the market. WG3 will accompany the changes in forests and wood products from an economic perspective and investigate how political decisions support promising adaption strategies.

The project focuses on the definition of joint research avenues within and also gives specific focus to the support provided to Early-stage researchers.
