Decision Making Support for Forest Ecosystem Services in Europe

POLYFORES is an inter- and transdisciplinary project involving scientists from natural- and social sciences with strong expertise in the field of Forest Ecosystem Service (FES) assessment and valuation. POLYFORES three main aims are:

(1) map ecological impacts including trade-offs and synergies between different FES of variable forest management scenarios at different spatial and temporal scales;  

(2) provide a holistic approach of value assessment taking into account different valuations across multiple levels of decision-making and diverse sectoral perspectives contributing to appraisal of trade-offs and synergies between different FES; and

(3) support decision-making processes of FES at different (Pan-European and EU, national and sub-national) levels through a transdisciplinary approach involving decision makers in a continuous participatory learning process level throughout the entire project.
