File Emerging Issues - 1. China’s Growing Demand for Wood, and 2. Fast-Wood Forestry by Portal Web Editor — last modified Jan 10, 2013 07:42 AM
USAID Forestry Programs Technical Notes on Emerging Issues in Global Forest Management September 2005 ******************** Issue I: China’s Growing Demand for Wood and Its Impact on Global Forests China’s emergence as a global economic power is likely to continue, and its dependence on forest products, both domestic and imported, is expected to continue to grow. This will have dramatic social, environmental, and economic impacts on the global forest sector. Just as China’s increasing consumption of oil is changing the global oil market, China is also changing the global market for wood products. Countries, companies, and communities that have or use forest resources are being forced to adapt to this changing marketplace. ******************** Issue II: Fast-Wood Forestry There is a growing global trend toward Fast-Wood Forestry. This trend is being driven by global factors that are unlikely to be suppressed or controlled. It is important for all forest resource stakeholders to be aware of what is happening and understand why it is happening, so that they respond appropriately and effectively.
