Hi cluster: a webinar that you might be interested in. - Brian
Join us on Tuesday, June 9 for an in-depth discussion on the practicalities
of implementing natural climate solutions through forest management.
UPCOMING EVENT Managing Forests for Climate Mitigation—from Theory to
Forests have been identified as an important and significant contributor to
climate change mitigation due to their ability to serve as a sink for
carbon dioxide. A healthy forest products sector may help to achieve this
goal if it can encourage the retention and management of forests. Earlier
this year, *Resources for the Future* (RFF) hosted an in-depth conversation
the important role forests can play in climate change mitigation.
On *Tuesday, June 9*, RFF will continue this conversation by convening a
panel of expert practitioners for a webinar
on how they are incorporating climate mitigation into their forest
management practices—on the ground, in various parts of the country. This
RFF Live event will begin with a short background presentation on the role
of forests in climate mitigation, followed by a moderated panel discussion
with representatives from nonprofit organizations and investment services,
as well as private landowners who have practical experience in active
forest management as a means to achieve conservation goals.
