Scope of our project

Case Studies

See what our partners are saying

Forest disturbances are making headlines, but we need better guidance how to increase forest resilience and help the forest sector adapt to climate change. Proper advice and tools to enhance forest value chain resilience are lacking - this is what we will develop in RESONATE.

Being part of RESONATE is fascinating because it allows us to compare our situation with many other places in Europe and also to learn more on how  we can increase the resilience of our Catalonian Forest.

Our “New Forest” case study is quite unique, but I am convinced we can learn from other case studies and how they are reacting to current or future changes in climate or different disturbances. We are very much excited to learn from each other!

It is very interesting to join RESONATE because I expect that some of the methodology that is going to be developed in the work packages can also be applied to the case study in our region on the boarder of Galicia and Portugal.

Being in touch with experts from the field allows us to formulate new concepts and new approaches to forest management. We hope to explore new ways on how to introduce the concept of resilience to our forests in Czech Republic, and how to increase the resilience of our industries and societies.
