A new FAO Guidelines on the Implementation of Nature-based Solutions NbS to Combat the Negative Impact of Climate Change on Forestry

Saturday, January 20 , 2024 1154

      Our colleagues from UEF member organization - Orman Mühendisleri Odasi - Chamber of forest engineers participated in the elaboration of the new FAO Guidelines on the Implementation of Nature-based Solutions (NbS) to Combat the Negative Impact of Climate Change on Forestry.

 

     Climate change is one of the most critical social and environmental concerns and the biggest threat to economic stability in human history. Türkiye, Azerbaijan, and Central Asia countries, namely Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, and Uzbekistan, are vulnerable to the negative impacts of climate change. Although average forest cover is only 10.2 percent of these countries (FAO-SEC countries), they play an essential role in climate change mitigation and adaptation, including human well-being and biodiversity co-benefits.

 

     The NbS concept has gained attention since the late 2000s. Its practical contribution to global climate change mitigation and adaptation efforts has found significant implementation opportunities in forestry to support the protection and conservation, restoration and expansion, and sustainable management of forests under the impact of climate change.

 

     The theoretical part of the Guidelines is intended to serve as a reference to provide brief information on forest cover and climate change trends in the sub-region, improve understanding of the NbS concept for forests, and facilitate NbS implementation to enhance climate change mitigation and adaptation. The practical part of the Guidelines is centered around six topics: • Global frameworks promoting the implementation of NbS; • Global and regional initiatives, platforms, projects, and examples; • Current NbS implementation in the sub-region; • Suitable NbS approaches for sub-region forests under climate change; • Applicability of NbS in the sub-region; and • Investments in NbS.
