ClientEarth's contribution to the public consultation on the new EU Forest Strategy

While welcoming the European Commission’s initiative of setting out a new Forest Strategy, we feel that the questionnaire misses the opportunity of gathering input that focuses on the preservation of forests, as the questions posed in the questionnaire consider forests primarily as an economic commodity to exploit. This approach does not realize the initial premise of the Strategy: to build on the EU biodiversity strategy and to focus on EU forest protection, restoration, and sustainable management, and on world forests where not already covered.
