Forest and Water

The Forest and Water Module underlines the importance of the relationship between forests and water and the role of water in various forest functions. The module presents general guidance on water management priorities in forests, as well as more detailed guidance on specific water-management issues, such as those relating to swamp forests, forests on saline-susceptible soils, riparian buffer zones and vernal pools.

The module also provides links to key tools and case studies of effective water management in forests.
