Alternative models and robust decision-making for future forest management
ALTERFOR explores the potential to optimize forest management models currently in use in different forested areas in European countries. The international consortium of scientists and forestry practicioners will examine alternative forest management models in ten case study areas. Each area represents different forest management practices and socio-ecological conditions across Europe. ALTERFOR is a large-scale, collaborative research project funded under the EU’s Horizon 2020 research programme, coordinated by the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (SLU), and involves twenty organisations from nine countries.
This film presents the cornerstones of 4,5 years intensive research with high relevance to forestry practice in ten European countries. In the ALTERFOR project, researchers and key forest-related stakeholders examined alternative forest management models that are robust in their capacity to deliver ecosystem services and reduce socio-ecological risks.
