This innovation action aims to develop mechanisms for multi-purpose forest management by enabling multi-purpose leasing on rented forest plots. The ultimate aim is to increase the economic efficiency of forestry while maintaining a balance between all ecosystem services.
Stakeholders are involved on three levels: renters, who propose multi-purpose forest management for a rented plot; regional and federal powers, who support proposals to amend the Forest Code to include several regulating and supporting ecosystem services; and local government bodies and municipalities who are involved in the innovation action for implementation of these proposals.
The final objective is to amend the Forest Code to include several regulating and supporting ecosystem services and to eliminate the existing restrictions to lease forest land for multi-purpose forest use, thus potentially increasing income from the forest whilst balancing ecosystem services.
