Community forestry adaptation roadmaps to 2020 for Asia

November 2014


There is a vast and unrecognized opportunity for community forestry to strengthen national resilience to climate change through diversifying rural livelihoods, increasing food security, leveraging social capital and knowledge, advancing disaster risk reduction and regulating microclimates. However maximizing the role for community forestry in climate change is an area where clear guidance and recommendations are lacking. 

To address this gap RECOFTC has developed a set of community forestry adaptation roadmaps to the year 2020 for a selection of Asian countries, with funding support from our core donors: Norad, SDC, SIDA and the Royal Thai Government.
