LIFE AforClimate – LIFE15 CCA/IT/000089


Objectives of the Assignment:

The general objective of LIFE AForClimate project is to maintain and improve the efficiency of beech forest ecosystems in the Apennines, through effective forest management that is adapted to climate change. To achieve this objective, the project defines a method for measuring likely impacts of climatic factors so as the management of beech forests promotes regeneration and seed production and ensure resilience. The project aims to achieve biomass increases (and therefore CO2 sequestration) of 5-7% to 1 5-20% compared to the reference value deriving from the application of the traditional approach. This also increases the overall ecosystem functionality.
