Forests in a Green Economy-A Synthesis
UNEP, 2011
by: United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP)

Drawing on UNEP’s Green Economy Report, this UNEP brief provides an evidence‐based roadmap for policy makers, the private sector, forest sector and forest dwellers alike. The paper includes an overview of the role of forests in the green economy, policy recommendations for forests in a green economy, and a number of success stories. The paper concludes that to fully realize the benefits of forests in a green economy, governments and the international community will need to take an active role, including through policy reforms to create incentives to maintain and invest in forests and introduce disincentives to modify market signals and associated rent‐seeking behavior. Examples of policies include national regulations, smart subsidies and incentives, information management, supportive international markets, legal infrastructure, and conducive trade and aid protocols.
