Abstract

The threat to European forests due to air pollution has reached unacceptable proportions. The InterAction Council, composed of former presidents and premiers from some 30 countries, took the initiative in 1988 and established the European Forum on Forest Protection. Its overall objective is to evaluate scientific findings and, based on the consensus achieved, to formulate policies and recommendations for policymakers and policy organizations.

The first meeting of the Forum was held in Stockholm, 3-5 July 1990, hosted jointly by the InterAction Council and the Royal Swedish Academy of Agriculture and Forestry. Participants came from 18 countries and included high-level politicians, scientists, and representatives of trade, industry and international agencies. IIASA's Forest Study and affiliated collaborators were responsible for presenting the latest scientific background information about the causes and effects of air pollution, the extent of forest decline, and projections about future developments and socioeconomic consequences. The nine papers presented by the scientific team are included in this book.
