Call is open for the special issue Forests | Special Issue : Innovation, Transition and Reconstruction of Forestry Oriented by Policies (mdpi.com), Open Access, Scopus, IF=3.3. 

Message from the Guest Editors
This Special Issue hopes to address the following questions of high importance (not limited to only these topics):

  • How could forest policies foster sustainable governance of forests and what are the roles of diverse stakeholders (e.g., businesses, NGOs, local communities, and international organisations) in putting multifunctional forestry (in different spatial and temporary settings/contexts) on sustainable paths?
  • How could bottom-up and top-down approaches in forestry (and their combinations) change “the rules and play of the game” (and promote a sustainable forest bioeconomy, the involvement of businesses in the financing of forest restoration/afforestation projects, the creation of green jobs and improving the well-being of forest-dependent communities and a wider society, etc.)?
  • How can the valuation of forest natural assets and ecosystem services help finance nature-based solutions, help resolve conflicts, and prevent and alleviate forest losses that inflict costs on society?

    This Special Issue will highlight articles presented at relevant sessions of the XXVI IUFRO World Congress 2024. New deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 September 2024.
