A ministerial conference Poland last week confirmed that there is a greater need for sustainable management of Europe's woods and an increased use of forests in energy production.

The Forests for Quality of Life conference held in the Polish capital Warsaw last week saw 46 European countries converge to discuss the future of the forestry industry in Europe, with a final declaration that woods and forests are vital in maintaining and enhancing water quality as well as mitigating natural hazards.

"Forests can improve the quality of our life through their contribution in mitigating climate change, water resources protection and as a provider of the biomass for energy purposes," said professor Jan Szyszko, Polish minister of environment, who co-chaired the meeting.

"Especially at present, when after decades of decline and concerns about the state of our forests, good government policies and positive management have returned healthier and abundant forests," he added.

Two resolutions have called for the enhanced use of wood in energy production as well as the restoration of degraded forests.
