This paper aims to illustrate some of the new influences which are affecting the forestry sector globally; it also highlights some of the opportunities and constraints which are becoming apparent. The report focuses on the role of forestry within the climate change debate. This has been done for two reasons; first, because the sector plays a vital role in ensuring that the predicted range of climate change is modified; and, second, because the interaction forced by this relationship is becoming decisive in generating new products and services which may well be essential in underpinning the sector’s continued economic development.
