Policy Brief 1
"Making European Forests Work for People and Nature" identifies critical forest policy issues in Europe and presents research-based opinions on possible solutions. Its focus is on specific topics relevant to forest governance which is currently seen as crucial for more efficient and responsive policy-making. In the present situation there are growing societal, economic and environmental pressures on the sustainable use and conservation of forest resources in Europe. The authors call for more responsive governance to future demands of the society as well as more results-based policy approaches to improve the effectiveness of policy implementation on ground.
The first EFI Policy Brief was produced by EFI, World Forests, Society and Environment (IUFRO-WFSE), Finnish Forest Research Institute and the Institute for World Forestry (BFH-HU).
