Abstract [en]

Concern over the fate of the world's forest cover has caused much activity in different camps. How make use of this tremendous, sustainable resource without spoiling it?

Since government ownership and national regulations in many areas have proven inadequate other measures are sought and tried. Certification of forestry is one tool being tested and developed. What can we learn from the certification schemes being currently tried in Europe and North America?

Basic institutions such as private ownership may be worth more attention. About 12 % of the world's forests are owned by non-industrial private owners. What can we learn from their management over long time?

Achieving responsible forest management in countries today loosing forests is no quick fix. Institutional changes are probably warranted. Increased ownership by private individuals or by local communities may be one factor to consider. Information, education and advice may be others. Forest certification may also be a tool to use.
