Global Foresight 2050 : six global scenarios and implications for the forest sector

Nilsson, Sten; Ingemarson, Fredrik


The aim of this report is to inspire organisations to improve their
preparedness for uncertain and complex alternative developments
and futures. The authors have been commissioned by the Swedish
University of Agricultural Sciences (SLU) to produce global scenarios
for 2050, each one with its implications for the global forest sector.
These scenarios are to support strategic operations at SLU and the
work of the International Union of Forest Research Organizations’
(IUFRO) Task Force Foresight for Forest Sector Planning. These
scenarios are also intended to be valuable to any other actors involved
in the global forest sector and sectors connected to it.
