Scientific Summary No. 26

The latest scientific summary is dealing with integrated environmental assessments in Europe.

Over the past decades, emphasis in European forest management has shifted from wood production to a broad spectrum of goods and services ranging from fiber production to landscaping and from biodiversity conservation to sustainable use of non-timber forest products. Consequently forestry and forest management have to be considered in a wider context and other sectors and issues are increasingly carrying out assessments at the European scale that encompass forests, but that hardly involve the forestry sector. Examples are European scale projects like Bioscore, Sensor, and Carbo-Europe, and examples in the policy process are the drawing up of a Pan European Ecological Network (PEEN).
