About the project

With the objective of the transition to a low carbon economy, some European countries and regions are developing -in separate ways, by different administrations- bioeconomic policies involving the forest sector. Forest products should be more and more used as an efficient way to promote the transition to a low carbon economy as they allow to capture CO2 for a long term; to reduce air pollution through a more sustainable industrial process; a waste drastic falling; to improve energetic efficiency; to support the sustainable forests management. This project aims to advance regional and national policy processes and implementation in relation with a greater use of forest products. The main expected outcomes are:
-Increase the share of forest products in our economies
-Take into account the forest sector as a bioeconomy important player in all planning and decision making
-Lay the groundwork for future integrated regional bioeconomy strategies and programmes involving the forest sector.
