Mission:

The Atmospheric Change and Forests Working Group promotes the knowledge of forest ecosystems through the science and monitoring of the effects of atmospheric changes on these forests, through international cooperation and dissemination of new technologies and techniques among the cooperating countries.

Objectives:

  • Promote the collection, exchange and dissemination of information and techniques in the field of monitoring of forest health and the evaluation of the effects of atmospheric changes on forests.
  • Prepare publications on the state of the health of forests in North America based on the monitoring of forest health conditions in the three countries.
  • Foster international cooperation, in the field of detection and effects of atmospheric changes on forests, within North America among scientists and forest managers and other natural resource agencies.
  • Foster communication with other NAFC Working Groups and with those of other FAO Forestry Commissions.
