To help meet these potentially divergent targets, ForestPaths will provide clear policy pathways that outline alternative trajectories for how European forests and the forest-based sector can help climate change mitigation, while conserving their biodiversity and sustaining ecosystem services. Across-the-board stakeholders, such as forest owners, practitioners, researchers and policymakers, will be engaged in four demo cases and four policy labs to co-design and evaluate policy pathways, which will be quantified through next-generation integrated assessment techniques. The generated policy pathways will be available on ForestPaths’ interactive CANOPY policy support platform, tailored for use by national and regional European authorities.
