The USDA Northeast Climate Hub will hold a Benefits and Costs of Natural Climate Solutions in Maine Forestry webinar on March 5th at 2 pm EST
Natural climate solutions are defined as “conservation, restoration, or improved land management actions that increase carbon storage or avoid greenhouse gas emissions across forests, wetlands, grasslands, and agricultural lands.” Natural solutions are typically found to be a cost-effective way to mitigate climate change while also providing other ecosystem services.
Dr. Adam Daigneault and Dr. Eris Simons – Legaard from the University of Maine will explain how to quantify the benefits and costs of different natural climate solutions that can be applied to forestry in the northeast, the opportunities and barriers to implementation, and how forests could help achieve Maine’s climate change mitigation goals.
Participate to better understand the economic and environmental benefits, costs, and mitigation potential of implementing natural climate solutions in Maine’s forests.
