Policy Brief 2: "Forest management options for the Green Deal?"
This policy brief is to relate the findings of the project ALTERFOR to the ongoing debate on how to use European forests. Specifically, it addresses consequences of different routes that European forestry could take in terms of production, protection and climate change mitigation.
Policy Brief 1 : "Reconsidering silviculture to meet challenges to European forests"
This policy brief presents a selection of findings on the current challenges to European forests and desirable silvicultural alternatives for meeting those challenges. It starts by recapping findings from three selected ALTERFOR countries – Portugal, Slovakia and the Netherlands – to exemplify the main silvicultural challenges, options and implementation hurdles. Policy implications are then derived from the comprehensive data set acquired by ALTERFOR.
