This document is a brief overview of how forests can contribute to climate change adaptation in Asia. It states that climate change funding presents an opportunity to expand sustainable forest management (SFM) and national adaptation strategies should address climate change adaptation within a broader framework of SFM activities. It also asserts that Forest-based climate change adaptation (FBA) involves two related components: ‘Adaptation for forests’ or strengthening the capacity of forests to deal with climate change and ‘Forests for adaptation’ or using forests to help society strengthen resilience to climate change, and to support livelihood strategies.
