    The sustainability of forests and the many benefits they provide requires high levels of sustained investment in their management and protection. A number of economic factors and Government policies—among them product or service costs and prices, capital costs, management efficiency, forest land productivity, and Government interventions, including tax and incentive policies and associated technical assistance—drive management decisions and investments. Taxes and incentives substantially affect sustainable forest management, specifically as a cost of conducting forestry business, by encouraging forest production and conservation, or by favoring certain sectors and activities.
