Abstract: "The theme of this year edition realizing the economic benefits from forests reminds us that managing forests in a sustainable manner for the range of values they provide will not be possible if the sector as a whole is not economically viable. Although markets for environmental services are growing, we know that wood and wood products will remain important sources of income for the immediate future. Therefore, governments and other owners of the resource must capture more of the production potential and create conditions for the development of efficient markets. At the same time, they must safeguard the environmental, social and cultural functions of forests."
