Linkages between mitigation and adaptation in land-use change and forestry activities

Linkages between mitigation and adaptation in land-use change and forestry activities

This chapter explores the opportunities for linking mitigation activities with
efforts to increase adaptive capacity. Because the issue involves two separate
objectives, each with multiple stakeholders and scales of analysis, win-win
situations are emphasised. Criteria and indicators for monitoring adaptation to
climate change are discussed in the light of emerging standards for mitigation
project development and monitoring.
