1 SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT, GLOBAL CHANGE AND ECOSYSTEMS Forestry and wood chain related research in Sustainable Development, Global change and Ecosystems priority Daniel Deybe DG RTD – I-1 Brussels – Nov 12, 2004

2 SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT, GLOBAL CHANGE AND ECOSYSTEMS ACTORS: INDUSTRIES, PUBLIC AUTHORITIES, CIVIL SOCIETY INTERNATIONAL: TRADE, CONVENTIONS, PARTNERSHIP REGULATION: LOCAL, REGIONAL, EU, WORLD FORESTS, FORESTRY Management Environment technologies SOCIETY, MARKETS MULTIFUNCTIONALITIES: LAND-USE, LANDSCAPE, RURAL DEVELOPMENT, ENVIRONMENT, SINKS & BIODIVERSITY SOLID WOOD CHAIN FIBRE CHAIN BIO ENERGY CHAIN BIO COMPOSITES CHAIN FORESTRY WOOD CHAIN & S.D.

3 SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT, GLOBAL CHANGE AND ECOSYSTEMS SUSTAINABILITY IMPACT ASSESSMENT INNOVATIVE METHODS and TOOLS Integrated framework of an. (Env., Econ., Social) Micro, macro Global regional local Foresight Participatory methods EDUCATION PROGRAMMES Capacity building EXTERNALITIES THRESHOLDS of SUSTAINABILITY MULTIFUNCTIONALITIES S.D. STRATEGY TOOLS FOR SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT ANALYSIS POLICIES and MEASURES - Environment technologies - Economic Instruments - Land-use practices

4 SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT, GLOBAL CHANGE AND ECOSYSTEMS Forestry and wood chains are essential components of sustainable development In terms of multifunctional uses of land In terms of economic and social impact In terms of industrial competition In terms of environment: biodiversity, C capture, multifunctionality, etc. These aspects justified the opening of a new instrument to deal with this integrative, innovative challenge and to contribute to enhancing sustainable development strategy

5 SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT, GLOBAL CHANGE AND ECOSYSTEMS The contributions of the Forestry IP are not isolated: –The sector needs to produce and use environmental technologies –The relationships with other land uses (agriculture, urban, coastal zones,…) need to be understood and conflicts resolved –The insertion and contribution to the economy has to be taken into account –Externalities cannot be neglected and need to be internalized –Trade-off between multiple functions need to be included

6 SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT, GLOBAL CHANGE AND ECOSYSTEMS Technologies Impact Assessment Tools and Methods at Macro- economic level Externalities (identification, quantification, evaluation) Primary sectorIndustryServices Multifunctional Land use Multifunct- ional Agriculture Forestry and wood chains Thresholds Urban Global framework for sustainability analysis Education

7 SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT, GLOBAL CHANGE AND ECOSYSTEMS Global-1 Multifunctional forestry and wood chains topic was open in the 1st call One proposal passed all thresholds but was not funded

8 SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT, GLOBAL CHANGE AND ECOSYSTEMS Global-2 Several SSAs

9 SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT, GLOBAL CHANGE AND ECOSYSTEMS Global-3 Multifunctional forestry and wood chains was reopened for new instruments. The text included forestry management Six proposals were presented at this first stage involving 158 European and international institutions Several proposals for SSAs

10 SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT, GLOBAL CHANGE AND ECOSYSTEMS Research on forest fire In FP6, research issues funded in FP5 are supposed to be integrated, in particular in terms of risk management

11 SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT, GLOBAL CHANGE AND ECOSYSTEMS Development of new & improved methodologies to forecast, mitigate and prevent forest fires FP5 projects: WARM, ERAS, SPREAD, FIRESTAR, SHAEP, AUTOHAZARD-PRO, EU- FIRELAB, FOFIRECO, MOFTRUN, FIMEX, FIREGUARD èImprovements in fuel mapping; èFire behaviour and propagation modeling; èFire risk management and decision-support èFire suppression and retardant application èDamage assessment FP5 Projects on Forest Fire research

12 SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT, GLOBAL CHANGE AND ECOSYSTEMS FP6 Integrated Project on Forest Fires Call closed X/2004 IP on Integrated forest fire risk management: Integrating hazard, vulnerability and risk assessment, including the wildland-urban interface. Improvement of: –fire suppression, risk mapping & monitoring. –public awareness; evaluation of non-structural (eg: land use planning) and technology-oriented mitigation strategies. –Post-fire damage assessment considering the social, environmental, ecological and economic consequences. –Exchange and dissemination of to user communities risk awareness for the formulation of mitigation policies. Interaction with Developing Countries is especially encouraged. 3 proposals were received involving 109 european and international institutions.

13 SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT, GLOBAL CHANGE AND ECOSYSTEMS Forest Fire FP5 – FP6 (research on forest fire has been founded since 1980s)

14 SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT, GLOBAL CHANGE AND ECOSYSTEMS Other source of funding: forest focus The main objective of the Forest Focus scheme will be to contribute to the protection of Community forests by means of monitoring and also by providing measures to prevent forest fires. Forest Focus will build on the achievements of the two previous Council Regulations (EEC) N° 3528/86 and 2158/92

15 SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT, GLOBAL CHANGE AND ECOSYSTEMS New monitoring instruments concerning biodiversity, soil, climate change and carbon sequestration will be developed through studies and demonstration projects. It is foreseen to finance in 2004 studies with a total amount of nearly 5 million Euro The Forest Focus scheme will mainly be implemented by MSs through national programmes with a period of two years ( and )

16 SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT, GLOBAL CHANGE AND ECOSYSTEMS WoodWisdom-Net (started) The Project is Building a Transnational Wood Material Science Programme in Europe WoodWisdom-Net, "Networking and integration of national programmes in the area of wood material science and engineering" ( ) is a project within the ERA-NET Scheme of the EU 6th Framework Programme. The final goal of the WoodWisdom-Net project is to prepare and implement a co-funded joint call in the field of wood material science in the year The project has 12 partners from five countries: Finland, Sweden, Norway, Denmark and Germany.
