Abstract

This chapter explores the future global need for land by investigating four trends that drive global land use change: future energy demand; future food demand; future demand for various forest products; and climate change. These trends affect land use competition, food prices, and deforestation rates, and they interact with each other in complex ways that are difficult to foresee. In this chapter, a number of trends, their interactions, and possible implications are discussed on the basis of available scenarios and estimates. The chapter ends with a discussion of how global land use changes might influence the conditions for future Nordic forest management and forest sector transition.
