Governance

Governing our forests in a time of transformational change makes the role of research, foresight and innovation more important than ever.

[English abstract] Although nature protection has recently gained significant importance in German state-owned forests, there is still a controversy between forest management and nature conservationists about the implications of these changes. The present study, published in German language by the Federal Agency for Nature Conservation, explores relevant concepts in German regional forestry enterprises as well as implementations of nature protection policies given the fact that the state forest in Germany serves public service obligations.
