The MSc programme Forest and Nature Conservation aims at the understanding, management and policy for forest and nature areas within all climatic zones, including the tropics. Forest and nature areas are complex land use systems under increasing ecological, social and economic pressure. On a local level, exploitation of biological resources changes in hydrological and other environmental conditions and different stakeholder interests, affect the sustainability. On a global level, sustainability is affected by climate change, deforestation, resource degradation and the demand for biodiversity and ecotourism. It will be a major challenge to maintain the economic viability of forest and nature areas, while at the same time ensuring that it provides the non-market goods and services that are increasingly in demand. Therefore we will need to increase our understanding on functioning and processes in forest and nature areas, so that they can be utilized and conserved in a sustainable manner.
