This eighth biennial issue of State of the World’s Forests
considers the unfolding future of forests and forestry
at the subregional, regional and global levels. Based
on the most recent of FAO’s periodic forest sector outlook
studies, it examines the impacts that external factors such
as demographic, economic, institutional and technological
changes may have on forests. With globalisation and
improved communications, the regional scenarios will be
increasingly interlinked. However, some countries and
regions are better prepared to face the upcoming challenges
and take advantage of emerging opportunities, while others
still lack essential institutional, legal and economic conditions to manage their forest resources in a sustainable manner.
