How Forests Enhance Resilience to Climate Change: The case of drinking water supply in Tegucigalpa, Honduras

Abstract : This study on the role of forests in enhancing landscape resilience to climate change is part of a larger multicountry project designed and led by Diji Chandrasekharan Behr (Sr. Natural Resource Management Specialist, World Bank) on the role of forests for enhancing resilience to climate change (www.profor.info/node/2032). The larger project aims to capture the role of forests in enhancing other sectors' resilience to climate change. It examines how sustainable management of forests can contribute to strengthening social and physical resilience of systems in other sectors. Using forest and tree management as part of a broader strategy to enhance resilience to climate change could provide a low-cost option for local landscapes while also helping to balance production, livelihood, adaptation, and mitigation goals.
