This publication is one of a series of publications produced by the Forests and Climate Change Programme of FAO in an effort to strengthen countries’ capacities to mitigate and adapt to climate change through actions consistent with sustainable forest management. The primary objective of this study is to provide an overview of the actual and potential impact of climate change on forests and forest dependent people in the Asia-Pacific region, of climate change mitigation opportunities in the forestry sector, and of needs for effective national and regional responses.
