PICS: Managing BC’s forest sector to mitigate climate change- Guillaume Peterson St-Laurent

Learn how different strategies can alter the carbon uptake and climate change mitigation potential of the BC forestry sector; the likely impacts of climate change on BC's forests; and how policy makers can align forest and wood product management practices with British Columbians’ values.

This initiative is part of the Forest Carbon Management Project supported by the Pacific Institute for Climate Solutions (PICS) that aims to generate recommendations for regionally specific climate change mitigation activities for BC’s forest sector, while maximising the environmental, economic and social benefits for British Columbians. This event will discuss the initial findings of this multi-year research collaboration.
