Evaluating financing of forestry in Europe

Contract nr: QLK5-CT-2000-01228
Project type: RS (Research and Technological Development Project)
Starting date: 01-01-2001
Duration: 48 months
Total cost: 2,619,999 EUR
EC Contribution: 1,742,993 EUR
Scientific Officer: Alexandros ARABATZIS
Research topic: 5.3.1. Multifunctional management of forests

Abstract:
Many countries have been reforming their forest policies in order to respond to the requirements of economical, ecological and social sustainability. Consequently, policy targets have become more complex compared with the past situation. In addition, the Community Measures have increased their relevance in forestry. With this project proposal, we are aiming to reinforce the emphasis on evaluation research of forestry funding in EU and EFTA countries, and in selected Countries in Transition (CIT). The public intervention costs will be estimated on a common and normalised basis to allow for regional comparisons. The effectiveness, efficiency and equity of alternative public financing programmes will be also assessed. The results will increase understanding and transparency of government actions in forestry, provide information for designing public policies in forestry and decrease social costs by establishing policy recommendations in order to avoid intervention failures. Further, the CIT will have access to research-based tools for reforming their forestry sectors.
