State of Europe's Forests 2011

Help us evaluate the FOREST EUROPE/UNECE/FAO State of Europe‘s Forests 2011 report by completing this short online questionnaire by 5 May 2012. Thank you for your contribution!

----------------------------------------

Europe is the most forest-rich region in the world. Its expanding forests have a huge potential to mitigate climate change. They provide the renewable materials wood and energy, and foster a green economy. Sustainable forest management practices increasingly promote conservation of biodiversity. But, diseases and extreme weather conditions threaten forests. These are the results that derive from the State of Europe's Forests 2011 report, that was launched at the Forest Europe Ministerial Conference in Oslo on14 June.

The State of Europe‘s Forests 2011 report aims at providing decision makers and the broad public with up-to-date, comprehensive and fact-based information on the status and trends in forests and sustainable forest management in Europe in the period 1990-2010.

The report was jointly prepared by Forest Europe, UNECE and FAO with significant support from the governments of Finland, France, Norway and Switzerland. The European Forest Institute and the Government of the United Kingdom also made substantial contributions.
