Abstract:
The overall objective of the Scenario analysis of sustainable wood production under different forest management regimes (SCEFORMA) project is to provide a quantitative assessment of future wood production in Czech Republic, Poland, Hungary and Ukraine, its degree of sustainability under various scenarios of forest growth and timber harvest, and the overall consequences of forest decline and climate change on future wood supply. These national assessments will be placed in a European perspective by including them in the frame of an ongoing project on large scale European forest scenario analysis that is being carried out by the European Forest Institute (EFI, Finland) and the DLO-Institute for Forestry and Nature Research (IBN-DLO, The Netherlands). Specific objectives of the proposed project consist of the following: 1. assessment of the forest resource by combining forest inventory data with a large-scale scenario model to predict future wood supply 2. analysis of potential effects of forest decline and climate change on future wood supply 3. assessment of different options for forest policy, accounting for national timber trends, environmental change, and forest management options Output: The project will enable the quantitative assessment of the potential for sustainable use of the forest resource, accounting for different management options, and accounting for overall aspects of forest decline and climate change impacts, using locally or nationally available information on forest growth. This implies the integration of information from various sources (forest management systems, forest inventory, growth and yield levels, forest decline, and climate change impacts) in an overall scheme for decision support. In doing so, historical data are used in combination with new information to contribute to forest policies aiming at restoration and sustainable use of damaged forest ecosystems in Central and Eastern Europe. The scenario results, comprising of scientifically up-to-date information on future forest resource development under different management regimes and environmental changes, will serve as the basis for the identification of sustainable forest policies in the countries involved.
