For the sustainable management of forests in Switzerland

With this Forest Policy, the Swiss Confederation formulates provisions for the optimal coordination of the ecological, economic and social demands on the forest. It aims to ensure sustainable management of the forest and a sustainable wood supply and create favourable conditions for an efficient and innovative forestry and wood industry. DETEC decided in 2017 that the previous Forest Policy 2020 had essentially proved successful and should be continued. This means that the eleven objectives and strategic directions will be maintained for the Forest Policy from 2021. The Action Plan has been updated for the period between 2021 and 2024. This publication defines the new federal measures and describes the role of the cantons and of other actors the Confederation considers necessary in order to successfully achieve the objectives.
