Question for written answer
to the Commission
Rule 138
David McAllister
 Answer in writing 
 Subject: Sustainable forest management

Sustainable forest management is crucial for effective nature, landscape and climate protection. Forests account for 182 million hectares, representing around 43% of the European Union’s total area, and are home to many animal and plant species.

In 2013 the Commission published a new EU Forest Strategy for forests and the forest-based sector. In 2018 it published a report for the European Parliament, the Council, the European Economic and Social Committee and the Committee of the Regions on the progress made in implementing the strategy.

Does the Commission plan to harmonise efforts to protect and sustainably manage forests?

What objectives of the EU Forest Strategy have been achieved since the Commission’s report on its implementation was published in 2018?
