The SINCERE project concluded with a major paper on policy-relevant findings to support multiple forest ecosystem services (FES) in Europe. These findings are based on research and innovation action carried out during the four-and-a-half-year project, along with insights from the ForestValue JC2017 project NOBEL and the H2020 project CLEARING HOUSE.

The paper provides ideas on how future European forest governance could align FES demand and supply in the light of three challenges (climate change adaptation, biodiversity crisis and the need to move towards a sustainable bioeconomy), and it suggests four future pathways for European forest policy to address these challenges and make use of the opportunities identified. These pathways are also outlined in a policy brief that summarises the paper’s main conclusions.
