Hydroecology based approaches nexus through forest ecosystems and watershed management can play a big part in achieving sustainable ecosystem services and climate change adaptation. Relationships and linkages between forest ecosystem services and climate change effects on these services can be revealed by these approaches which are considering and targeting water, vegetation, carbon and soil interactions. In the face of changing ecological, hydrological and climatic conditions on local, national and/or global scale all over the world, we need more informa on on hydrological risks (e.g. flood or erosion risk), hydrological evaluations on water quati ty and quality, climate models, climate change indicators, quantifica on and mapping of ecosystem services to foresee current situations to take precaution, as well as new approaches, methods, models and suggestions. The aim of this session is to provide an overview of ecosystem services using hydroecology based approaches and explore how these forest ecosystem services can be sustainable in changing climatic conditions
