Climate & Applied Forest Research Institute (CAFRI)

The Climate & Applied Forest Research Institute (CAFRI) was founded by SUNY ESF and Cornell College of Agriculture and Life Sciences (CALS) in 2018 to provide policymakers and the public with knowledge and tools so they can make data-driven, practical, efficient, and sustainable decisions about climate solutions, through science-based stewardship of New York's natural and working forest lands.

CAFRI offers advanced capabilities in systems modeling and data science—including life-cycle, technoeconomic, and geospatial assessments—to identify climate mitigation strategies that are scalable and achievable.
