CAR-ES 2011-2015

Coordinator: Inge Stupak

Environmental Services (ES)

The MCPFE process (Ministerial Conference on the Protection of Forests in Europe, now Forest Europe) and the concept of sustainable forest management (SFM) emphasize the research focus on ES, which society now recognizes and demands from the forest sector, and which may become a future source of income to forest owners. The anticipation for SFM was recently further substantiated for the Nordic countries by the Selfoss Declaration. The CAR- ES aims to provide the necessary knowledge for informed decisions on forest management with respect to the ES, thus we will improve the knowledge for each of the service disciplines as well as on how to compare different services.
