MEACAP: Afforestation in Europe

AUTHORS: Giuliana Zanchi-Daniel Thiel-Tim Green-Marcus Lindner

This report provides an overview of the policy context for activities promoting land conversion to forest. Requirements and rules surrounding forestry activities and the associated legal implications for farmers and countries complying with the rules are reviewed; dynamic trends of carbon sinks and sources in different forestry activities are analysed; existing information and databases on conversion to forest land or plantations at the European level are presented. The report concludes with a discussion about quality of available data, gaps and uncertainties and the identification of present and possible future trends in afforestation activities in Europe.
