Yale Forest Forum: Climate-Smart Forestry on Private Lands
November 27 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Talk title: Climate-Smart Forestry on Private Lands
Speaker: Andrea Colnes, New England Forest Foundation
The Yale Forest Forum is offering a Fall 2023 Speaker Series Webinar entitled “Understanding Climate-Smart Forestry in Practice” on Mondays September 11 – November 27 from 12:00 pm – 12:50 pm U.S. ET. The series will feature speakers from public-sector organizations like the U. S. Forest Service, nonprofits, researchers, and academics from across the U.S., as well as “on-the-ground” practitioners. The series seeks to explore the following questions: How can forests be managed to be resistant to fires, storms, pests, and other acute risks that are exacerbated by climate change? What are the tradeoffs between managing forests for climate adaptation, climate mitigation, and other goals for producing goods and services and protecting ecological health? How can climate-smart forestry (CSF) help keep communities safe and resilient and provide economic opportunities? How do policies and markets influence CSF and its outcomes? and more!
The Fall Speaker Series is hosted by The Forest School at the Yale School of the Environment, the USDA Northeast Climate Hub, and the USDA Southeast Climate Hub, and co-sponsored by the Yale Center for Natural Carbon Capture.
Join us every Monday from September 11 – November 27 from 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm U.S. ET. Note there will be no webinars on October 16 and November 20.
