Non Technical Summary
PhotoThis complementary mission topic includes (but is not limited to) making annual estimates of the amount of carbon that is added each year to the stock of carbon stored in harvested wood products each year. It also includes development of indicators of socioeconomic benefits of forests under the Montreal Criteria and indicators process to assess forest sustainability.


Objectives Summary
Evaluate the environmental impacts of wood-based product production and use and to evaluate the carbon mitigation benefits of wood products production in combination with benefits of forest management.
