Canadian Council of Forest Ministers Release Comprehensive Approach for Advancing Canada’s Forest Bioeconomy. From: Natural Resources Canada News Release. Canada’s forests hold the world’s largest biomass reserves – the basis for making renewable bioenergy, biomaterials and other : Natural Resources Canada. The present strategic direction deals with concerns about the management of forest sector science and technology on a national basis. Within Canada, many organizations and agencies are involved in forest S&T. The federal government assures research services in forest research, wildlife, hydrology, fisheries and remote sensing, among others.

Data from the boreal region of Canada paint a different picture again with respect to the socio-economic drivers Cited by: of the forest crisis in Canada, considering the economic, social and ecological role of forests. It also describes the historical evolution of the federal government’s roles and responsibilities in the forest sector.
In recent years, all sectors of Canada’s forest industry have declined: softwood and hardwood lumber production has declined. Canada is rich in forest resources. Science-based management practices can help sustain these resources.

The State of the World's Forests reports on the status of forests, recent major policy and institutional developments and key issues concerning the forest sector.
It makes current, reliable and policy-relevant information widely available to facilitate informed discussion and decision-making with regard to the world's forests. Canada's boreal forest is a vast region comprising about one third of the circumpolar boreal forest that rings the Northern Hemisphere, mostly north of the 50th parallel.
Other countries with boreal forest, include Russia, which contains the majority, the United States in its northern most state of Alaska, and the Scandinavian or Northern European countries (e.g. Sweden, Finland, Norway. This edition of The State of Canada’s Forests celebrates Canada’s years as a forest nation.
It features articles focussed on the impacts of forest disturbances (fire and insects) and the science behind their management, the forest sector’s role in the emerging bioeconomy, and Indigenous peoples’ participation in the forest sector.

The Nobel Prize winners in Economic Sciences showed how evidence-based experiments can help improve. Improved forest and land management resulting in lowered rates of deforestation and forest degradation in the tropics would reduce the current rate of CO 2 emissions substantially, and would also reduce the release of other greenhouse gases associated with the burning of forest vegetation.
