The ONEForest project, which has the Rosenheim Technical University of Applied Sciences as its coordinator, aims to create a multi-criteria decision support system for integrated forest management to strengthen forest resilience, harmonize stakeholder interests and ensure sustainability of timber flows.
The Kick off meeting of the project will be held online on June 17th and June 18th.
ONEforest and the Mediterranean Model Forest Network will work hand in hand to formulate recommendations on methods joint and shared together different interest groups (e.g. forest owner, society, industry) that can be applied all across Europe.
The joint decision-making process will ultimately lead to a regionally adapted management concept with overlaps between the various stakeholder interests to better combine local strengths.
The Mediterranean Model Forest Network will work to understand and quantify common decision-making processes on forest management and to draw general recommendations on methods and approaches that can be transferred to other regions. This will result in assisting stakeholders to set up at least one additional Model Forest in each case study region. The idea is that some already established Model Forests act as tutors in these establishing processes.
