European Forest Sector Outlook Study 1960-2000-2020 Main Report

Published: February 2005


This is the sixth major study in the European outlook study series. The aim of the study is to provide decision makers in the forest sector with information and analysis about long-term trends in the sector and projections of future developments. In particular, the study focuses on the interactions between the forest sector and society and attempts to describe how these are changing over time. The study covers 38 countries, including all of the major European countries and seven of the countries from the former-USSR (the three Baltic States - Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania - plus Belarus, Republic of Moldova, Russian Federation and Ukraine). For the purpose of sub-regional analysis, countries are grouped into Western Europe, Eastern Europe and CIS sub-regions (see Figure 1 on page 3). Most of the results of the historical analysis are presented for the period from 1961 to 2000, while projections are presented for the period 2000 to 2020.
