Integration of Climate Change Risks and Resilience into Forestry Management in Samoa (ICCRIFS)

Description

Through this project, the Government of Samoa will strengthen institutional capacities to systematically identify and address the climate change-driven risks for the management of native forests and agroforestry areas, in order to increase the resilience of rural communities and protect their livelihoods from dynamic climate-related damage, pursuant to the attainment of Samoa's Millennium Development Goals (MDGSs). 

Expected outcomes

  1. Climate change risks and resilience are integrated into forestry policy frameworks
  2. Climate resilient agro-forestry and forestry techniques are demonstrated in lowland agroforestry and upland native forest areas
  3. Project knowledge and lessons learned are captures, analysed and disseminated
