NCASI webcast on climate change and its effects on forest ecosystems

Some forest certification programs require participants to be knowledgeable about climate change science and implications for forest ecosystems. NCASI will host a webcast on August 27 to assist its Member Companies that participate in forest certification programs and are interested in increasing their awareness of climate change.

The webcast will begin at 2:00 p.m. Eastern time and run approximately 60 minutes. Topics to be covered include

  • drivers of climate change;
  • earth’s climate history;
  • recent trends in climate,
  • greenhouse gases, and extreme events;
  • factors to consider when predicting future climates or interpreting predictions;
  • results from studies of ecological response to recent climate change; and
  • proposed adaptation strategies, including sustainable forestry options.

Participation is open to all NCASI Member Companies at no charge. Pre-registration is not required.
