What is ACResT?

The Atlas of Climate Resilient Tree Species seeks to become the most comprehensive information source on the climate resilience, urban suitability, and the biodiversity, cultural and economic value of tree species in Malaysia, Singapore, and Kalimantan. It is designed to function as a powerful tool for informing planting decisions, sourcing tree species, and catalysing action for policy change and the ex-situ conservation of tree species
