2nd TitleForest Strategy 2020 - Sustainable Forest Management – An Opportunity and a Challenge for Society [Germany]
CreatorBundesministerium für Ernährung, Landwirtschaft und Verbraucherschutz (BMELV)
DescriptionThe Federal Government of Germany has adopted the Forest Strategy 2020 for Forests as a Natural and Economic Resource. The goal of the Forest Strategy 2020 is to develop a viable balance, adapted to future requirements, between the growing demands made on forests and their sustainable performance. The basis for this is equal consideration of the three dimensions to sustainability (ecological, economic and social). The goal of the sustainable use of forests calls for the same weight to be given to economic viability as ecological responsibility and social justice. The Forest Strategy should, furthermore, be in harmony with the federal government's other strategies like, for instance, the National Sustainability Strategy, the National Biodiversity Strategy, the Biomass Action Plan and measures to mitigate climate change. The Forest Strategy 2020 builds on the major findings of the National Forest Programme (Nationales Waldprogramm - NWP).
