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 globalization 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.
