TitleCOST Action FP1201. Forest Land Ownership Changes in Europe: Significance for Management And Policy (FACESMAP)
CreatorCOST Action FP1201
DescriptionForest ownership is changing across Europe. In some areas a growing number of so-called 'new' forest owners hold only small parcels, have no agricultural or forestry knowledge and no capacities or interest to manage their forests, while in others new community and private owners are bringing fresh interest and new objectives to woodland management. This diversity and change creates implementation problems for forest-related policies including biodiversity conservation, timber and renewable energy supply, climate change mitigation, or recreation. The work is organised into three working groups: (1) Forest ownership types and motives; (2) New forest management approaches; (3) Forest owner related policies. The interdisciplinary work will be done in close cooperation with relevant public and private stakeholders. The Action will run from 2012 to 2016.
