Climate change adaptation in forest production systems in a globalizing economy
Umeå University, Faculty of Social Sciences, Department of Geography and Economic History.
2019 (English)In: Research Handbook on Climate Change Adaptation Policy / [ed] Keskitalo, E. C. H. and B. L. Preston, Cheltenham: Edward Elgar Publishing, 2019, p. 417-437Chapter in book (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

Forest management and timber production requires long-term investment and decision-making and therefore requires greater consideration of the potential impacts of climate change compared to pasture or annual crops. Despite this, there has been relatively limited attention paid to adaptation in production forestry compared to other sectors such as water or infrastructure management. This chapter investigates adaptation policy for forestry from the perspective of national and international resource networks using examples from three jurisdictions: British Columbia in Canada; Sweden; and Victoria, Australia. These jurisdictions were chosen to represent different climatic conditions, forest ownership and management structures. The authorsdescribe the legislative and policy environment for forestry and the current and potential impacts of climate change on forests and forest management in these locations. They then review the measures currently in place to support adaptation and the policy options that could be implemented to support more effective adaptation. In doing so, they consider the current constraints on adaptation and the challenges for achieving adaptation in policy and practice in forestry sectors.
