Forests produce multiple products and Introduction ln economics forests are analyzed separately from other renewable resources Forests possess characteristics of both renewable and nonrenewable resources trees are not forests and forests are much more than trees Introduction Is it ripe time for sustainable forests If yes the big HOW question Sustained Yield Timber Management Wildlife Water Sustainable Forest Management SFM x Objectives To discuss economic perspectives of sustainable forest ma conte externalities and non m rketv ues To contribute to the current debates on SFM by clarifying major issues of common concerns policies that encourage sustainable forest management What is Sustainable Forest Management Sustainable Forest management SFM is an internationally accepted and applied concept that balances the environmental social and economic values and services that forest provide There is no universally agreed upon definition of SFM De nition Background Forest resources and forest lands should be sustainably managed to meet the socia economic ecological cultural and spiritual needs of present and future generations These needs are for forest products and services such as wood and wood products water foo fodder medicine fuel shelter employment recreation habitats for wildlife landscape diversity carbon sinks and reservoirs and for other forest products Forest PrinCIples Principle 2b De nition Background The stewardship and use of foests and forest lands in a way and at a rate that maintains their biodiversity productivity regeneration capacity vitality and their potential to fulfill now and in the future relevant ecological economic and social functions at local national and global levels and that does not cause damage to other ecosystems MCPFE 1993 p1 But we all agree in the concept FAO Montreal Process PanEuropean Roundtable on Sustainable Forests USDA FS SFM based on MontreaIPmcess has 7 39 etc criteria and 57 indicators Sustainable Forest Management and Modern forest economics Social economic and ecological features of SFM are different than that of sustained yield timber management Hence the economics of SFM wil be based on different economic principles The two main requirements of the economics of SFM are the economics of multiple equilibria and a consumer choice uieury 39 heterogeneity of agents context speci c and dynamics of preferences distin ion between needs and wants and the subordination of needs Guidelines Solow 1992 has proposed that sustainability s ould allow intergenerational tra eo bu no generation should be favored over any other It implies that people should not create any burdens for other genera ions Chichilnisky 1997 found that there exist sus ainable preferences which satisfy axioms that neither the present nor the future should play a dictatorial role in society s choices over ime which implies that there would be solutions for sustainable forest managemen An alternative view of SFM Applying Public Economic Lens to SFM Market failures Externalities Local and Global Public Goods Local and Global State and Local Public Finance An alternative view of SFM Any the same levels of government may not has the same objectives on SFM Any different levels of government may not has different objectives on SFM Multiple equilibriums Based on public participation and local and global needs Key concepts Well defined in Natural Forests vs Plantation Forests Public Forests vs Private Forests Property Rights Ownerships Local and global agreements Good economic instruments could be applied Using intergovernmental transfers agreements and broad legal system Example With environmental dimension normal forests should be separated from plantation monocultures based on ecosystem management Pulpwood or sawlog production purpose could be explicitly designed plantations or mixed forest management SFM could be better applied when certain characteristics are known Requirements Legal requirement Forest certi cation Carbon credit at global levels broadly internalized externalities Natural forest taxation or differential property tax rate Promote technology offorest products including recycle Support re management pest management and patch managemen No dictatorship Governments provide estimations of biodiversity and ecosystems value try to remove asymme ric information Analysis It is true that SFM has One Hundred Faces Wang 2004 If we could internalize all externalities to forests or fully set up markets for forest products and services SFM could result in the First best world solutions However they may result in the Second best world solutions With the public economics framework SFM could be seen in the stakeholder approach Need bargaining Department of Forestry
