FORWARDS project launches a new funding call for Climate-Smart Forestry

17 August 2023

The call for grants is closed.

FORWARDS, an EU-funded project, will prototype a pan-European monitoring and evaluation tool – the ForestWard Observatory. This tool will support decision-making on various scales: it will provide a strategic outlook on disturbances, future risks, vulnerabilities, and threats at both the European and national levels, while also offering operational information for local Climate-Smart Forestry (CSF) and restoration management practices at the regional and local scales. To help set up the ForestWard Observatory, FORWARDS is launching a series of grant calls. 

Launched at the end of July, the initial round of grant calls will fund five projects for establishing new CSF and forest restoration trials. These trials will offer a foundation for developing an evidence-based understanding of effective CSF and restoration management strategies, crucial for climate change mitigation, adaptation, and biodiversity preservation.
