Forest Institutions and Policy Instruments in Europe _____iii PREFACE The sustainable management of forests and the balancing of the economic, ecological and social functions of forests contribute significantly to overall sustainable development in Europe. Forestry cannot be isolated from the forces that drive all economic activity.

It involves using land, labour, and capital to produce goods and services from forests, while economics helps in understanding how this can be done in ways that will best meet the needs of people. Therefore, a firm grounding in economics is integral to sound forestry policies and practices.1/5(1).

By the end of the 17th century, more than half of Europe’s original forest had disappeared and. Around the world, forests are shrinking due to deforestation, urban development and climate change, but in Europe that trend has been reversed.

Large areas of the continent have seen a forest boom that means today more than two-fifths of Europe is tree-covered. Between andthe area covered by forests and woodlands increased by 90, The CBM model, in the context of the LULUCF (Land Use, Land Use Change and Forest) sector, is used to estimate the current and future forest carbon dynamic, both as a verification tool (i.e.

to compare the results with the estimates provided by other models) and as a support to EU legislation (e.g. the recent EU Regulation /).
