This book explores historic and future outlooks as well as current tradeoffs and methods in forest governance and management. It emphasizes the generality and complexity with empirical data from Sweden and internationally.
It first investigates, from a historical perspective, how previous forest policies and discourses have influenced current forest governance and management. Secondly, it explores methods to realise alternative forest futures and how the results from such investigations may influence the present. Thirdly, it examines current methods of balancing tradeoffs in decision-making among ecosystem services.
