Global processes

Global forest policy has become an increasingly important issue, not only because of global climate chance, but also because of growing demand for sustainable energy, consequences of globalization, deforestatation in the tropics, illegal timber trade, and poverty in third world countries.

In many countries, the framework of forest policy expanded in the 1990s to become much more of an international issue, partly as a result of the UN Conference on Environment and Development in Rio de Janeiro in 1992. By now, almost every European country has developed its legislation, organisations and regulations to conform to the principle of sustainability.
