Forest and Climate Change Governance
Climate change is “a change of climate which is attributed directly or indirectly to human activity that alters the composition of the global atmosphere and which is in addition to natural climate variability observed over comparable time periods” (UN 1992).
Climate change governance refers to a wide scope of activities related to both mitigation and adaptation and requires their coordination between numerous sectors (Meadowcroft 2009; Keskitalo 2010; Fröhlich and Knieling 2013).
Adaptation is “the adjustment in natural or human systems in response to actual or expected climatic stimuli or their effects, which moderates harm or exploits beneficial opportunities” (IPCC 2007).
Mitigation is “an anthropogenic intervention to reduce the sources or enhance the sinks of greenhouse gases” (IPCC 2007).
Forest and climate change governance is the process in which the role of forests in combating climate change is clearly recognized and emphasized.
