The State of Europe’s Forests 2020 report (SoEF 2020) presents recent official figures and information on European forests, their management, policies, institutional and legal frameworks in the FOREST EUROPE signatory countries.
The summary provides a brief overview of the main facts from the upcoming full report. In a comprehensive format, based on the pan-European criteria for sustainable forest management, it presents key findings on the status and trends in Europe’s forests.
The information compiled in this publication provide background for political discussions and responses on current and future opportunities and challenges and can also serve as a reference point for decision-makers when formulating goals for forests in Europe for the next period as well as for FOREST EUROPE signatories and observers in planning of further activities.
Considering that European forests are increasingly impacted by recent natural disturbance developments, such as extreme weather events, outbreaks of pests and diseases, there is a need for a broader framework for climate change adaptation and pro-active disturbance-risk management. This brief leaflet presents policy recommendations of the FOREST EUROPE Expert Group on Adaptation of Forests to Climate Change.
The publication is focussed on integration of climate change adaptation measures to sustainable forest management in Europe. Besides Part II prepared by the team of authors, the publication also contains policy recommendations of the FOREST EUROPE Expert Group established on this topic (Part I).
