The presentation allows to provide an overview about the tasks to be worked on in the Action by TF3. In general the idea is to integrate the work from the WGs by identifing management models for optimizing NWFP production under different forest management conditions:
•Subtask 3.1: Reviewing current NWFPs management (M0-M21)
–What expertise or models are being used?
–Which are important NWFPs without proper management?
•Subtask 3.2: Towards a multifunctional management: managing NWFPs with other products (M6-M33)
–How can the production of NWFPs be combined with wood production and/or other productions?
–What are the trade-offs for a combined production?
–How do environmental conditions (including climate change, biotic and abiotic threats) effect the management?
–What are successful combinations of NWFPs ecosystem services within a particular socio-economic situation?
•Subtask 3.3: Guidelines for NWFPs management (M18-M48)
–compile and develop standardized silvicultural and management instructions enhancing NWFP productions as well complementary yield of wood and non-wood forest products – How?
–Screening of existing management concepts (e.g. single tree oriented planting systems, age class systems, close to nature management systems) for their applicability for a combined production of NWFP and wood – Which?
–focus only for a limited number of European NWFPs – Which?
