Climate change induces multiple risks to forests and forestry. Our overarching goal is to provide advanced digital technologies and risk management solutions and tools for mitigating forest disturbances caused by spruce bark beetles and storms. We will develop: 1) advanced geospatial technologies for defecting and monitoring forest disturbances, and 2) efficient solutions and tools for sustainable risk management at different spatial and temporal scales. We will also demonstrate, co-develop, and communicate efficient digital technologies, risk management solutions and tools with key stakeholders in the society, to enhance their utilization potential in practical forestry. Our ambitious research provides a significant renewal in the science-based risk management under a changing operative environment and valuable support for climate change adaption and mitigation.
