    The world is experiencing a number of complex and sometimes interrelated transitions, including moving toward new geopolitical and economic balances, toward more urbanized societies, toward unprecedented technological change and toward a lower carbon and more sustainable future. At the same time, the world is experiencing more frequent and more severe climate-related disasters as well as demands for social equity across many spheres – between rich and poor, between those who have benefited from globalization and those who have not, and across genders and among generations. These demands are being expressed with increasing intensity and are reflected in new political realities. The transitions have created a markedly different world compared to the turn of the millennium and even since the completion of the Asia-Pacific Forest Sector Outlook Study in 2010; thus the landscape that forestry operates in is both new and rapidly evolving. Meeting the challenge of managing forests and forestr y through these transitions and the risks they entail – including ensuring that forestry proactively contributes to shaping change – will require sound strategic thinking, wise investment and broad cooperation, among stakeholders and at international levels.
