Improvement of climate protection services of managed forests by collaborative management of small and micro private forests in North Rhine –Westphalia

The project “Improvement of climate protection services of managed forests by collaborative management of small and micro private forests in North Rhine –Westphalia” aims to show means for a purposeful development of forests adapted to climate change by a sustainable and strengthened mobilization of resources. In particular approaches for collaborative forest management and the necessary frameworks and possibilities for implementation will be analyzed and implemented as examples in cooperation with private forest owners. Within this process instruments like voluntary exchange of land, consolidation of arable land and founding of forest cooperatives are to be offered and the possibilities for implementation are to be questioned. Therefore it is necessary to learn more about the forest owners’ goals, strengthen their concern to utilize their property and achieve additional value by a positive development.
