Abstract : Strengthening the links between climate change mitigation and adaptation in the forestry sector is necessary. Mitigation needs adaptation; as reducing emissions from deforestation and forest degradation (REDD) is more likely to be successful if it considers the impacts of climate change on forests and people and incorporates adaptation measures. Adaptation needs mitigation; as ecosystem-based adaptation projects may benefi t from REDD funding if their contribution to carbon conservation can be demonstrated. However, knowledge is currently missing for understanding synergies or confl icts between climate change mitigation and adaptation strategies at different scales. Therefore, greater understanding and information sharing are necessary to establish appropriate guidelines for developing projects or policies that effectively address both approaches to climate change. Tools and methods are also needed for analyzing the synergies and confl icts between mitigation and adaptation. In this communication, we present examples of synergies and confl icts between mitigation and adaptation in forests at different scales: landscape, project, national, and international scales. We present some approaches for studying the linkages between adaptation and mitigation at these different scales and the main challenges for projects and policies related to climate change and forests.
