CRiSTAL Forests is a decision-support software tool that helps project planners and managers design activities that support adaptation to climate variability and change in forest-dependent communities. CRiSTAL Forests targets project planners and managers working at the local or community level. It relies on information collected from desk-based review and stakeholder consultations at the local level (community and other local experts) using participatory methods.
