Objectives: This project aims to analyze the role of forests in enhancing the resilience of societies to climate change, and understand and identify forest management regimes and institutional arrangements that generate related benefits. It aims to inform national and sub-national level decision-makers and development practitioners how forests can be of value to other sectors, primarily water, agriculture and energy, and contribute to planning and policy making processes.
