Research need from Focus Group: Evaluate how to mainstream knowledge exchange, including a forester exchange programme
Climate and climate change
This is the problem:
This need for research has been identified by FG24 on "forest practices and climate change", If you want to know more about it, check the final report of the Focus Group.
A substantial knowledge gap exists between science and individual decision-makers in European forestry with respect to forests and climate change (e.g. Blennow et al. 2012). To help build an adaptive and mitigation capacity to deal with climate change in European forestry, innovation is needed to make science-policy-practice communications more effective. Good decisions require good information. Which methods of communication, then, lead to adequate climate change action? How to mainstream knowledge exchange, including a forester exchange programme
