Report on Adaptation of Forests to Climate Change
The report consists of seven chapters. Chapter 1 provides for introduction. Chapter 2 of this report presents a short overview of the forests of Armenia, Azerbaijan and Georgia, their importance, and the pressures and threats that they face. Chapter 3 presents information about changes in the climate in the region up to the present day and predicted future changes from modelling studies. Chapter 4 describes the impacts of changes in the climate on forests generally and the impacts that we should expect on forests in the South Caucasus. Chapter 5 describes strategies for mitigating the impacts of climate change on forests including adaptation of forests to climate change. Chapter 6 discusses resilience and close to nature forest management and recommends a process for elaborating transform plans for the pilot sites. Chapter 7 provides a brief outlook for the pilot sites in the face of the uncertainty surrounding the predictions about the future climate.
The report will serve as a narrative guide for transformation planning in all three countries involved (Armenia, Azerbaijan, and Georgia).
The report is available on this web-page for download in PDF version.
