International forest policy – an overview

For Sweden as a forest nation, what is happening on the international political arena on issues related to forests and forestry is of key importance. In recent years this has become particularly evident in the framework of international climate cooperation, where forest resources are identified as part of the solution to the climate problem.
The purpose of this report is to contribute to the understanding of international forest policy and how this affects Sweden and Swedish forestry. The report provides an overview of the most important international agreements and other political processes that in various ways are linked to forests and forestry. It mainly focuses on intergovernmental cooperation and has a Swedish perspective as its point of departure.
The work has been coordinated by the Secretariat for International Forestry Issues (SIFI) at the Royal Swedish Academy of Agriculture and Forestry. It has been financially supported by the Ministry of Agriculture, the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (SLU), the Swedish Federation of Forest Owners, World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF), the Swedish Forest Industries, the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida)/the Forest Initiative and the Royal Academy.
