Feature article

Forestry around the globe is being affected by globalisation, the expansion of forest products trade, increased transnational investments, improved information and communication technology, increased population growth and urbanisation, and a changing climate. Forestry has also become more people-centred and societal perceptions are increasingly valuing environmental, social and cultural functions of forests. The FAO’s 196 member countries and the European Union guide the FAO’s Forestry Department to respond to these changes by reaching outside the traditional forestry sector, engaging in partnerships with new stakeholders, collaborating with other sectors, and adopting more multi-disciplinary and integrated landscape approaches.
