Description

ONEforest supports the deployment of regional forest management concepts that strengthen forest resilience and sustainable wood supply levering wood-based products. This is achieved by empowering actors to understand the far-reaching consequences of their decisions in a multi-criteria decision-making environment. ONEforest will provide successful solutions for reconciling the provision of various Forest Ecosystem Services (FES), such as the carbon storage potential in environmentally friendly forest-wood value chains (FWVC) based on stakeholder interests in order to provide optimised management solutions.

Main goals

To develop a Multi-Criteria Decision Support System (MCDSS) that supports decision-making by assessing sustainable forest management (SFM), synergies and trade-offs of forest ecosystem services (FES), reliable wood supply, and stakeholder interests through forest-wood value chain (FWVC) indicators of social, economic, and environmental dimensions.
