Abstract: The protection and sustainable development of forests – especially in the tropical and boreal zone – are a central issue of international environmental and forest policy, particular with regard to forest degradation and deterioration caused by land-use dynamics, climate change, air pollution and non-sustainable management practices. The Institute for World Forestry provides scientific contributions to close major knowledge gaps with respect to the interdependency of ecological processes, environmental impacts and forest utilisation, to develop strategies for sustainable forest management, and to provide scientifically sound support for political decision processes. The activities of the institute are focusing on the international context. [Information of the supplier]
