The Importance of Carbon in a Climate Emergency
The Forestry Climate Change Working Group (FCCWG) now the Forestry & Climate Change Partnership present this Workshop Webinar; a free online workshop for forestry practitioners exploring the importance of carbon in a climate emergency.
As a result of the UK’s commitment to becoming a Net Zero economy by 2050, carbon sequestration is likely to become a significant additional source of income for landowners looking to enhance their property with woodland creation and can underpin the financial viability of a project.
Find out how you could join the journey to Net Zero and play a part in supporting the drive for woodland creation across the UK.
Forestry Climate Change Action Plan 2021-2026
The FCCP is committed to working together to make a material contribution to the pace and impact of adaptation of our woods trees and forests to climate change. The action plan seeks to provide a common and authoritative voice to advocate strongly for policies which incentivise adaptation, to provide input to the development of research priorities and to support provision of learning, knowledge sharing and dissemination for practitioners.
The action plan is informed by the British Woodland Survey 2020 and by the collective experience of members of the FCCP. Organisations collaborating in the FCCP are actively promoting adaptation and engaging their networks. These individual initiatives are welcome and encouraged. This plan focuses exclusively on actions which the partnership can develop and deliver collectively, which will have greater impact than working alone.Download
Forestry and Climate Change Adaptation Accord
Our shared vision is for Britain’s trees, woods, and forests to be resilient to climate change and therefore able to meet their full potential in providing the full range of ecosystem services upon which human society and nature depends.Download
Visit the new Climate Change Hub
Forest Research has launched the Climate Change Hub; a resource for the forestry sector, hosted on the Forest Research website, which is aimed at forest and woodland owners and managers in particular.
What is the Climate Change Hub?
The Climate Change Hub from Forest Research is a new one-stop shop that centralises and distils the latest adaptation information. If you’re considering undertaking adaptive practice but are not sure where to start, the Climate Change Hub is a useful resource that reflects UKFS adaptation guidance, from the new UKFS Practice Guide entitled ‘Adapting forest and woodland management to the changing climate’Find out more
