DescriptionThe Forest Biodiversity Programme METSO 2008–2016 aims to halt the ongoing decline in the biodiversity of forest habitats and species, and establish stable favourable trends in Southern Finland’s forest ecosystems. The objective of the programme is to ensure that Finnish forests will continue to provide suitable habitats for endangered and declining species. The METSO Programme covers both private and state-owned lands. It is a collaborative effort between the Ministry of the Environment, the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry, the Finnish Environment Institute and the Forest Development Centre Tapio. The programme builds on previous work implemented during the period 2003-2007.
