Focus on sustainable development

Nordic indicators 2006

The purpose of this Nordic set of indicators is to inform the public and political decision makers whether the Nordic countries and selfgoverning areas are heading in the right direction towards sustainable development or not, both in general and in specific areas. The indicators also point out if there is a need to promote the development towards a more sustainable direction. The chosen indicators are monitoring the Nordic implementation of the goals and initiatives for 20052008, as they are set up in the revised Nordic Strategy "Sustainable development New bearings for the Nordic countries". The set of indicators contains a number of overall keyindicators as well as indicators relevant to the specific sectors or crosscutting areas pointed out in the revised strategy. New areas in the revised strategy are the social dimension as well as sustainable production and consumption. The Nordic Council of Ministers has published Nordic sets of indicators in 2002 and 2003.

Hide / Show Abstract

The goal is sustainable forestry which involves use and management of forests and forested areas so that forests can fulfil ecological, economic and social functions. Forestry should be a competitive business ensuring revenues and work places and a supply of high-quality forest products. Forestry should at the same time ensure and maintain healthy and viable forest resources and ensure and maintain biological diversity and other such environmental values. Finally, forests should be available for outdoor recreational activities.
