Adapting forestry to changing climates

Tropical forests have an important role to play – not only in providing physical buffers to drought, scorching heat, dust storms and flash floods, but also in providing livelihoods to millions of people across the globe. Safeguarding these forests, notably against the effects of climate change, has been the focus of TroFCCA’s activities in three regions over four years. These three regions spanned eight countries: Burkina Faso, Ghana, and Mali in West Africa; Costa Rica, Honduras, and Nicaragua in Central America; and Indonesia and the Philippines in Southeast Asia. As climate change adaptation is an essential component of the EU-Africa Partnership, TroFCCA was aided financially by the European Commission with some €3.3 million. While the project was financed by the Commission, it was hosted by the Centre for International Forestry Research (CIFOR) and relied on input from the Agriculture Centre for Research and Higher Education (CATIE).
