TEAMING UP 4 FORESTS invites you to join the launch webinar of a new evidence-based synthesis report on Europe’s wood supply in disruptive times. In this session, we will present the key findings of this report and exchange views with stakeholders. We will unravel crucial factors impacting wood supply in Europe and discuss concrete measures to address emerging challenges.

Background: Forests in Europe are strongly affected by climate change and face many additional challenges, such as political uncertainties and a fragmented forest landscape. A key challenge for Europe is to secure, maintain and enhance the sustainable supply of wood from its forest ecosystems. To address this, a deep understanding of the factors impacting wood supply is needed as well as concrete response measures building on a strong evidence base. Our new synthesis report provides scientific insights and expert knowledge on these issues for all stakeholders of the forest value chain and the wood-based sector.
