This policy brief, compiled by the secretariat, outlines the main expected environmental and economic impacts of climate change on boreal forests, highlights ongoing research about the role of boreal forests in climate change mitigation and outlines possible adaptation pathways. It builds on research conducted by experts of the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe/The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (UNECE/FAO) Team of Specialists on Boreal Forests and the International Boreal Forest Research Association (IBFRA). It aims to provide policymakers, experts and the general public with information about boreal forests in the context of climate change.
