Innovative forests for curbing climate change while integrating biodiversity, nutrient retention, and recreation
Key elements in the green transition are sustainable management of natural resources and land use change targeted emission reductions. Establishment and sustainable management of multifunctional new forests are pivotal in this process.
INNO4EST will provide a systematic approach for innovative design, establishment and documentation of ecosystem services from new forests. Sustainably managed forests have a potential for carbon sequestration and storage while integrating biodiversity, nutrient retention and recreation, i.e. 4 ecosystem services of high importance for achieving national and international green goals.
Increasing attention to multiple services of forests potentially enhance their future societal value while still curbing climate change. INNO4EST will identify key influencing factors for the 4 ecosystem services and their interactions and trade-offs on short and long term herby providing transparent and reliable indicators and methods for documentation of the provision of the 4 ecosystem services. Data sampling includes in-situ data and remote sensing. Methods will be tested on actual afforestation projects from the past 70 years and implemented in new case areas in cooperation with partners. Results are disseminated and discussed with stakeholders, providing immediate response.
