11 April 2024 PEFC Forest Forum

Join us in Paris on 16 May for a unique event and experience forest management in the climate crisis, in theory and in practice. At the very first PEFC Forest Forum, we will look at Forest management in the climate crisis: Building resilience and sustainability.

Following an insightful morning with engaging speakers exploring the theme of the event from a theoretical point of view, we'll head to the beautiful Chantilly Forest to experience first-hand how climate change already affects forests, and how management is being adapted to increase resilience.

Forests find themselves at a crucial juncture. Climate change is changing their landscapes by affecting their diversity, health, and resilience to pests, droughts, and fires. However, there's an upside: forest products such as wood, fibre, and fuel hold considerable promise in combating climate change. These resources, though often overlooked, possess the potential to play a pivotal role in shaping a sustainable response to the climate crisis.

In the face of a warming world, the forest sector is focusing on adaptation, mitigation, and decarbonization to respond to the challenges of climate change. 

The PEFC Forest Forum 2024 in Paris, France, organised by PEFC International and PEFC France, will put forest management in the climate crisis in the spotlight. It will demonstrate the good practices in the forest that are building resilience and sustainability, and will inspire action. 

The event will showcase on the ground efforts in forest management that highlight the challenges and opportunities of adapting forests to a 2°C warmer world.
