This forest plan seeks to synthesize, transfer, and implement the best available knowledge on adaptation in both policy and practice, building on the results from previous projects and initiatives on adaptation to climate change in the Alps.

Abstract

This forest plan seeks to synthesize, transfer, and implement the best available knowledge on adaptation in both policy and practice, building on the results from previous projects and initiatives on adaptation to climate change in the Alps. By applying a knowledge-transfer concept driven by the information and communication needs of project target groups, the plan optimizes the usability of available knowledge resources in an attempt to bridge the gap between the generation of adaptation knowledge and its application in the real-world decision-making. The plan involves stakeholders in different ways, with participatory events and through eParticipation in the form of online surveying and collaboration on problem-analysis and solution-finding, in order to support bottom-up adaptation measures in the Alpine regions and municipalities. The forest district level of planning proposes a strategy for the operational local forest plans. Therefore, at this level, the long-term objective of implementing multiple-use forest management which copes with climate and land-use change is better ensured. For this reason, we tested how an understanding of change consequences on local forest types may enable a focus on delivering adaptation measures in the forest district plan of a south-eastern alpine region.
