New publication on LIFE projects supporting adaptation to climate change
The European Commission published a brochure, “Ready, Steady, Green!” on LIFE projects supporting new adaptation measures in the forestry and agriculture sectors.

Ready, Steady, Green! is a new publication of the LIFE programme showcasing a broad range of innovative adaptation measures to support farmers and foresters in the EU in introducing climate-smart production methods.

The main themes of LIFE projects addressing climate change adaptation in forests are:

  • adaptative forest management
  • forest monitoring and modelling and tools and services
  • preventing and tackling forest fires
  • protecting ecosystem services
  • information, governance and capacity building

In this publication, the examples from the forestry sector address, among others natural disturbances such as forest fires and changes in tree species composition.
