Forest management

Sustainable forest management addresses forest degradation and deforestation while producing goods and services, increasing climate resilience, as well as ecosystem benefits, to the environment and human populations.1 Growth and change in Mediterranean forests has been closely tied to human use for hundreds of years: integrated and sustainable forest management has the potential to increase the productive capacity and protect the environmental health of these important ecosystems.
