DescriptionThe GFEP Adaptation Panel is the first of a series of Global Forest Expert Panels (GFEPs). The Panel on Adaptation of Forests to Climate Change was formed by the GFEP Steering Committee in late 2007 to carry out an assessment of scientific information on the ecological, social and economic impacts of climate change on forests and people to support management and policy decisions. The Expert Panel consisted of 37 scientists with outstanding scientific expertise on issues related to forests and adaptation. The assessment report 'Adaptation of Forests and People to Climate Change – A Global Assessment Report' and a policy brief were published officially at the 8th session of the United Nations Forum on Forests (UNFF8) in May 2009. GFEPs are an initiative of the Collaborative Partnership on Forests to provide objective and independent scientific assessments of key issues in order to support more informed decision-making at the global level. The initiative was launched in April 2007. The initiative is led and coordinated by the International Union of Forest Research Organizations (IUFRO). The assessments are carried out by thematic Global Forest Expert Panels uniting leading scientists from around the world.
