DescriptionThe conference addressed the broad issues concerning environmental policies affecting the forestry and forest products industries, the driving forces behind them, and the effects they have on the national and global environment. A paradigm of three general factors or forces that drive environmental policy was proposed based on: 1) Society's Wants and Needs, 2) The Need to Maintain the Integrity of the Eastern Forest Ecosystems, and 3) The Role of Forest Management, Forest Products Research and Development and the Associated Improved Utilization of the Harvested Resource in satisfying forces (1) and (2). Within this system, it was recognized that the two drivers, Regulation and Incentive Systems, are used to provide direction for the paradigm to function.
