The Resilience Programme focuses on forest-related resilience issues, including the integration of biodiversity in sustainable forest management, climate change adaptation and mitigation, forest-related risks, payments for ecosystem services and the role of forests and trees in climate-smart cities. The programme emphasizes work on the science-policy-society interface at a European scale, thus strengthening EFI’s policy support role.
The Governance Programme addresses emerging forest governance challenges and opportunities based on the understanding of interests, expectations and perspectives (e.g. urban versus rural, local versus global) from different stakeholders and sectors on forest land uses and forest management goals.
