Effects of climate change on forestry management in the Jurassic arc region

Federal Office for the Environment

Key facts

An exchange with the Regional Audit Office of Burgundy-Franche-Comté led the Swiss Federal Audit Office (SFAO) to look at the effects of climate change on Swiss forestry management. At nearly CHF 663 million, the forestry programme agreement represents the largest federal contribution in the environmental area for the 2020 to 2024 period. The SFAO’s assessment focused firstly on forests in the Jurassic arc region – which border on France – and then extended to cover national forestry policies and strategies.
