Scientific Summary No. 8

This Scientific Summary is dealing with "Building Bridges to a Sustainable Future: IUFRO at the Science-Policy Interface".

The growing emphasis on stakeholder consultation in international policy forums and a wide variety of ongoing regional and national forest policy formulation processes presents both an opportunity and an obligation for forest scientists and research organizations to provide policy-makers and stakeholders with scientifically sound information, both to inform policy discussions and to assess the likely implications of policy options on forest resources and their management.
