No 2003/4, Work report of the Institute for World Forestry from Johann Heinrich von Thünen Institute, Federal Research Institute for Rural Areas, Forestry and Fisheries

Abstract: The follow-up negotiations to the Convention on Biological Diversity formulated the Ecosystem Approach, inter alia. The principles of this holistic approach are also important for the forestry sector and its management of forest ecosystems. In the light of the national debate and international forest policy negotiations, there is a need for German and European forestry to switch to the perspective of the Ecosystem Approach. This should be based on the regulatory framework on sound and sustainable forestry in Germany prescribed by forest legislation that has been further developed by technical regulations. This is all the more true as the issue 'Relationship between Ecosystem Approach and Sustainable Forest Management' had been incorporated into the ' Expanded Programme of Work Biological Diversity in Forests', adopted at the 6th Conference of the Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity, to clarify its content.
