He coined the term proforestation to summarise his approach to rapidly needed carbon sequestration. In several publications, he and his team have explained why it is imperative to preserve existing old-growth forests if we are to win the battle against global warming.
The Northern Limestone Alps region is home to exceptional forest areas and with the UNESCO World Natural Heritage “Ancient and Primeval Beech Forests”, Austria has a special responsibility to preserve and connect these natural forests. Now it is a matter of maintaining or - where necessary - improving the functional ecological connectivity of these outstanding areas through a coordinated network of protection and careful use.
We cordially invite you to take advantage of this rare opportunity to learn first-hand about the topic of proforestation and to join in the discussion.
