Looking to the future for forest ecosystem services in Europe

30 March 2022, 10:00 – 11:30 CET | online event, Registrations

Following recent strategic developments for forests at European level, it is timely to look to the future for forest ecosystem services (FES). What are the potential opportunities and support needed for the provision of FES to contribute towards such strategies in Europe?

This online event presents selected conclusions and recommendations based on experiences, practical work and findings on the implementation of FES-related innovations and policy learning, from two European-wide research and innovation projects, SINCERE and NOBEL.

The outputs presented in this event are the culmination of project activities and a consultation process where key findings and recommendations were discussed with policy stakeholders in September and December 2021, along with additional consultation and research considering aspects beyond the scope of the two projects.

Presentations include:

  • Governing Europe’s forests for multiple ecosystem services: opportunities, challenges, & policy options – Key points of the SINCERE-NOBEL policy brief
    Georg Winkel, University of Wageningen
  • Payments for Environmental Services – possibilities of wider adoption in Europe
    Sven Wunder, European Forest Institute
  • Auction games and Forest Management: collaboration and competition for payments for ecosystem services
    Harald Vacik, University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences, Vienna (BOKU)
  • Upscaling potential & innovative business models for forest ecosystem services
    Thomas Lundhede, University of Copenhagen

This event, open to all, targets policy- and decision-makers, scientists, forest owners and managers, entrepreneurs and business leaders, and representatives of civil society.
