    This working paper seeks to define sustainable forest management(SFM) in terms of how different management objectives should be balanced and the spatial and temporal dimensions involved. The technical feasibility of SFM is discussed with reference to experiences in different regions. Its financial and institutional feasibility is also covered with regard to factors leading to market and policy failure. International aid to the forest sector is analyzed according to how it can contribute to the s ustainable management of different forest types.

    The Russian forestry sector in the global forest products market: trends, outlook and opportunities for development 2006

    With an abundance of forest resources and considerable experience in forest processing, the Russian forestry sector has the potential for significant development in the future. This paper presents information about the current structure of the Russian forestry sector and recent forecasts of future production and consumption. This analysis shows that the sector is currently focused on roundwood and sawnwood production, with relatively little development of more processed and higher value-added pr oducts, such as wood based panels, pulp and paper. This suggests that development of the other factors of production should be given greater attention (i.e. labour and, in particular, capital). However, in order to encourage greater investment in the sector, it will be necessary to strengthen policies and institutions, improve access to information about the sector and work towards reducing investment risk. This paper finishes by describing some of the ways that FAO might be able to provide assi stance to the Russian forestry sector.

    Trends and Outlook for Forest Products Consumption, Production and Trade in the Asia-Pacific Region
    Asia-Pacific Forestry Sector Outlook Study Working Paper No: APFSOS/WP/12

    A review of the historical developments of consumption, production and trade of forest products in the region followed by a forecast of future trends (1993-2010) through the use of a dynamic spatial equilibrium model. The forecasts indicate that the Asia-Pacific demand for forest products will continue to rise, as rapidly growing economies are concentrated in the region. The real prices of industrial roundwood and sawnwood are projected to increase slowly until the year 2010. The real prices of wood-based panels and of paper and paperboard are not predicted to change greatly.
