Good practice guidance on sustainable mobilisation of wood in Europe

Nov 26, 2010

FOREST EUROPE has published the brochure Good practice guidance on sustainable mobilisation of wood in Europe. The publication highlights the growing demand for renewable energy as one important driver for the increased attention to wood mobilisation. The European wood mobilisation potential is presented, and examples of concrete actions and measures with promising mobilisation potentials are showcased. A core message is that all mobilisation efforts should follow the principles of sustainability.

The brochure’s content is based on good-practice examples that were identified during and after the workshop on “Strategies for increased wood mobilisation from sustainable sources”, held in Grenoble, France in June 2009. The workshop was an activity of the FOREST EUROPE Work Programme on the follow-up of the 5th Ministerial Conference on the Protection of Forests in Europe, held in Warsaw, Poland 2007. The workshop was co-organised by the French Ministry of Food, Agriculture and Fisheries, FOREST EUROPE, UNECE/FAO, CEPF, CEPI, ENFE, EUSTAFOR and CEMAGREF.
