  1. 1. Constructing and contesting the legitimacy of private forest governance : The case of forest certification in Sweden

    Author : Johanna Johansson; Carina Keskitalo; Karin Bäckstrand; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; accountability; corporate social responsibility; eco-labelling; forest certification; forest governance; forest practices; governance; legitimacy; national forest inventory; private governance; Sweden; voluntary standards; statskunskap; political science;

    Abstract : In recent decades, political scientists have devoted substantial attention to the changing role of the state towards more inclusion of non-state actors in policymaking. This deliberative turn, or move towards governance, may signal inability to handle complex problems without cooperation with nonstate actors. READ MORE

  2. 2. Supporting Management of the Risk of Wind Damage in South Swedish Forestry

    Keywords : AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; decision support; uncertainty; probability; wind climate; tree growth; forest management; spatial planning; topography; climate change; adaptation; Forestry and Wood Technology; Skog och träteknik;

    Abstract : Private forest owners in southern Sweden consider wind damage to be one of the most problematic risks from an economic perspective. A potential climate change also raises the question of the possible impact of such a climate change on the risk of wind damage. READ MORE

  3. 3. Carbon Balance Implications of Forest Biomass Production Potential

    Author : Bishnu Chandra Poudel; Inga Carlman; Johan Bergh; Thomas Lundmark; Roger Sathre; Mittuniversitetet; []
    Keywords : AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; forest management; silviculture; clear-cut forestry; continuous-cover forestry; substitution; total carbon; climate benefit; climate change; Forestry and Wood Technology; Skog och träteknik;

    Abstract : Forests in boreal and temperate forest-ecosystems have importance for carbonbalance since they sequester large amount of atmospheric carbon by uptake ofcarbon-dioxide during photosynthesis, and transfer and store carbon in the forestecosystem. Forest material can be used for bio-fuel purposes and substitute fossilfuels, and supply wood products, which can replace carbon-and-energy-intensivematerials. READ MORE

  4. 4. On the contribution of forest bioenergy to climate change mitigation

    Author : Olivia Cintas Sanchez; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; NATURAL SCIENCES; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; Forest bioenergy; forest management; climate change; energy systems.; GHG balances; forest supply; carbon budget;

    Abstract : Greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions have to be drastically reduced to keep global warming below 2 degrees. Bioenergy can play a role in climate change mitigation by substituting for fossil fuels. READ MORE
