Nordic forests under pressure
In the future, Nordic forests may become increasingly torn between demands from global industry, climate change mitigation, and environmental concerns, according to a new book: “The Future Use of Nordic Forests – A Global Perspective”. The book project has been funded by the Future Forests research programme.
“The Future Use of Nordic Forests – A Global Perspective” was launched yesterday at the International Boreal Forests Research Association (IBFRA) conference 2015 in Rovaniemi, Finland. The book explores the current and future problems facing forest managers and policymakers in Nordic countries including Sweden, Finland, and Norway, and also in similar forest systems such as Canada.
