Join the Peace River discussion group. This session we will be discussing this video HERE, where Elisabeth Pötzelsberger, Head of the Resilience Programme at the European Forest Institute (EFI) and coordinator of the SUPERB project, explains the importance of “prestoration” – the combination of restoration and climate adaptation - for resilient and functional forest habitats. She discusses how it differs from classical restoration approaches, highlights its relevance to the new EU Nature Restoration Law and lists concrete examples of how prestoration is being applied within the SUPERB demonstration areas in Germany and in the Czech Republic.
