Abstract

The global forest products industry represents close to 3% of the world's gross economic output, and the forests upon which it depends are particularly important ecosystems for the health of the planet and for human well-being. The size of the industry, its links to the rest-of-the-world economy, and the centrality of its resource base to environmental sustainability make it an industry subject to intense controversy and growing public and regulatory scrutiny.
