Climate Change and Forests in the Congo Basin: Synergies between Adaptation and Mitigation

Submitted by Tahia Devissche... 12th October 2010 10:53

Although climate change adaptation and mitigation strategies differ in many ways, synergies exist between them, particularly in the forestry sector. The objective of this project is to provide policymakers and practitioners with the information, analysis and tools they need to implement policies and projects for adaptation to climate change and reduction of carbon emissions in the forests of the Congo Basin, with equitable impacts and co-benefits.

The project is expected to have an impact on forest and climate change policies at national and regional scales, and will help mainstreaming adaptation and mitigation strategies into national development processes and the regional framework for forest policies in the Congo Basin.
