Project Details

Description

In the Integrated Biodiversity Conservation and Carbon Sequestration in the Changing Environment (IBC-Carbon) project we will, based on diverse data and modelling, identify forests that are valuable in multiple ways. We will provide decision-supporting tools on how to optimally manage these valuable forests in a changing climate and how to secure their connectivity. Moreover, we will develop voluntary monetary compensation mechanism for forest owners to increase their incentives to secure multiple forest values. We aim to provide concrete suggestions 1) for the compensation scheme that is ecologically and economically feasible as well as socially accepted in Finland and 2) for adapting the mechanism to the Finnish forestry framework.
