Adaptive risk management in oak and pine forests vulnerable to drought via integrative evaluation and flexible damage thresholds


Duration: 01.07.2019-30.06.2022


Client: ARTEMIS is funded by the Federal Ministry of Food and Agriculture


Contact person: Lara Lahaye



The project’s aim to establish test cases to show how tailored and differentiated solutions for sustainable forest protection can be found in times of climate change. A central aim is to establish flexible thresholds for "acceptable" damages that reflect the immense variety of forest ecosystem functions and services. Their definition will be supported by wide-ranging consequence analyses that are capable of incorporating variable societal and political context conditions.



agrathaer will be responsible for ensuring that all relevant stakeholders will be involved in the entire process of developing such thresholds. Our activities will on the one hand focus on the target group specific communication of the project’s results (dissemination) and on the other hand we will facilitate the active participation of all relevant stakeholders (co-creation). These activities are seen as a cross-sectional task across all work packages. The following approaches will be conducted: online-questionnaire, regional workshops, developing a suitable softwaretools incl. it’s testing phase.
