Biodiversity and timber production : -a goal conflict in the forest (English)
The purpose of this work, has been to examine how different actors in the Swedish eco movement and the Swedish forest industry looks at Sweden’s forest policy statement, which claims that environmental goals and production goals should be equal in Swedish forestry. By assembling focusgroups with participants from the Swedish eco movement and the Swedish forest industry, we look at if these participants consider the Swedish forest policy goals equal or not. Conflicts do occur between the two forest policy goals, but also between those and others of Sweden’s environmental goals. Between Sweden’s eco movement and Sweden’s forest industry there are both examples of cooperation and conflicts. Our results does show that it is hard to say if the Swedish environmental goal and production goal is equal in Swedish forestry today. More research is needed two examine this, and to decrease the risk of further conflicts. The results of this inquiry also shows that both the Swedish eco movement and the Swedish forest industry wants more interactions and dialogues. The eco movement and the Swedish forest industry also agrees that the nature conservation in Sweden’s forests would gain on a wider use of a landscape perspective. Furthermore, the eco movement and the Swedish forest industry agrees that Sweden’s voluntarily protected forest areas should be promulgated, to insure their quality and also so that they could be counted into Sweden’s protected forest areas.
