PRELIMINARY QUESTIONS FOR WORKING GROUPS ON THE SUMMARY OUTLOOK DOCUMENT PREPARATION (Will include a review of country reports, thematic study, baseline studies findings)

While the outlook document aims to provide a long term perspective with 2020 as the target year, it will be advantageous to have an indication of the outlook in the short term and medium term with the target years 2005 and 2010. This will enable policy makers and planners to identify short term, medium term and long term measures to bring about changes in the desirable direction. There is a need to identify:

­  assumptions underlying different scenarios (including population and income changes, changes in the structure of the economy, policy and institutional arrangements, level of investment, state of science and technology, etc.);

­  what could be expected from the forestry sector in 2005, 2010 and 2020 under the above assumptions:
