Sustainable management of the circumpolar boreal forests to meet climate change – a complex challenge
In June this year the Haparanda ministerial declaration on circumboreal cooperation on forests was adopted. It initiates in-depth collaboration between Canada, Russia, USA, Finland, Norway and Sweden. Under the supervision of the International Boreal Forest Research Association (IBFRA) Future Forests will lead a circumboreal project in the science — policy interface exploring the potential of boreal forests to mitigate climate change.
Participants: Peter Blombäck, Head of Policy and Analysis Division, Swedish Forest Agency, Florian Kraxner, President IBFRA, Deputy Program Director, IIASA, Hans Djurberg, Chair of the Board, FSC International and Annie Sandgren, Project Manager, IKEA Wood Supply and Forestry.
