Advancing Sustainable Forest Management in the US

Catalyzing U.S. Action on Sustainable Forest Management

In 2000, the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Forests (IPF) developed a set of international guidelines for sustainable forest management, called the IPF Proposals for Action. The Pinchot Institute has led a comprehensive national process to assess U.S. progress on the guidelines to date, and to identify issues and strategies for future improvement.

The final report, Advancing Sustainable Forest Management in the United States, summarizes the actions being taken by government, business, conservation groups, and other organizations to improve forest conservation in relation to international standards. More importantly, it evaluates the adequacy of current efforts, and proposes priorities for future efforts, based on the views of a diverse group of forest experts and stakeholders convened by the Institute.
