    In the 12 years since the first Asia-Pacific Forestry Sector Outlook Study was completed in 1998, the region has experienced tremendous changes in nearly every aspect. These changes have been particularly profound in the forestry sector, where society has dramatically increased its demands and expanded its expectations of forests and forestry. This subregional report for East Asia summarizes the key findings and results collated under the second Asia-Pacific Forestry Sector Outlook Study - a com prehensive effort spanning nearly four years and involving all member countries of Asia-Pacific Forestry Commission. The current report synthesizes observations and findings from four East Asian country reports, numerous thematic reports and a review of current and past publications in providing analyses of the status and trends of forests and forestry in East Asia. The publication analyses key factors driving changes in forestry in the region and sets out three scenarios for 2020: High growth, Low growth and Green economy. The report also outlines priorities and strategies to move the subregion's forestry sector onto a more sustainable footing and to provide continued benefits to future generations.
