Urban Forests In Europe

Summary
Abstract: The main objectives of the Urban Forests In Europe study is to provide an
indicative, comparative insight in urban forest policy-making in Europe, as an
overview of European urban forest policy-making seems to have been absent till
now. Providing more insight into the various policy objectives and instruments
used as well as into their consequences can assist when developing urban forest
policies for a specific urban area, region or country. Insight in the
policy-making process and the problems and conflicts that arise between groups
of stakeholders during this process, as well as the ways in which these
problems and conflicts are dealt with in various European cities and countries
is believed to help policy-makers to anticipate similar situations in the
future. Apart from the above mentioned 'societal' objectives, the following
scientific objectives for the study have been formulated:

1. To develop a concept of urban forestry, focusing on the main differences
with forestry at large; to demonstrate the relevance of such a distinction.;

2. To give an overview and analysis of differences and similarities - and their
underlying factors - in the development and importance of urban forests in
selected European cities and countries.;

3. To provide insight in urban forest policies and the way in which these are
formulated, decided upon and implemented in selected European countries,
especially locally, and in the context of the regional and national level.
