Submitted to the Environmental Registry on March 13, 2017 by Dean Mohini Sain


Introduction

The Faculty of Forestry, University of Toronto commends the Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry on two decades of working on initiatives to mitigate and adapt to climate change, culminating in the development of its climate adaptation strategy for natural resources and a call to action in ‘Naturally Resilient’. It is our position that society needs to be reminded how important forests are to climate change; and it is the role of the Faculty of Forestry and other forest researchers to communicate the strong connections suggested in our research.
