Forestry enhances the sustainability of the agriculture sector through its environmental and climate change mitigation and adaptation roles. Forests also positively contribute to our biodiversity, recreation, water protection and flood prevention, renewable energy, air filtration/pollution removal and consequently can play a significant role in climate change adaptation within the agricultural sector.
