F2 - Network of similar initiatives

One of the objectives of FORECCAsT is to help strengthen the interactions between initiatives dealing with forest and climate change, to exchange information and to transfer the project and its application to other territories.


Curated content

There are more and more projects focusing on forest and climate change. For this reason, it can be rather challenging to find the most relevant articles about these subjects. FORECCAsT curates them for you!


International newsletter "Forest and climate change"

FORECCAsT is managing a quaterly collaborative and international newsletter about forest and climate change. The goal of this newsletter is to enable a better diffusion of all information concerning these topics, and to help networking activities between projects. News from field projects, trending publications, events to come... it covers all these subjects and is published every three months. You can subscribe here!
