ADAPTATION OF FORESTS AND PEOPLETO CLIMATE CHANGE
Executive Summary and Key Messages
1 Forest Ecosystem Services:
A Cornerstone for Human
Well-Being
Greenhouse gas emissions are the main anthro-
pogenic cause of current climate change. The
magnitude of future change will be affected by the
extent to which these emissions are reduced. Regard-
less of climate change mitigation activities imple-
mented today or in the near future, however, histori-
cal emissions and inertia in the climate system mean
that further climate changes are inevitable. Some
effects of climate change are already noticeable and
there is a need and opportunity to be better prepared
for future change. Individuals, societies and institu-
tions should be aware of the impacts that climate
change is likely to have and should have strategies
in place to adapt to them.
