    A broad range of biophysical, economic, and social influences affect forests. Many of these influences originate beyond the forest community in sectors such as agriculture, housing, water, energy, and transportation. Urban development and other nonforest land-use decisions and actions can have significant effects on forests and the goods and services that they provide. Developing policies and programs that have coordinated aims, strategies, and instruments across multiple sectors can produce comprehensive solutions to the complex problems threatening forests and their sustainability. This indicator is closely linked to Indicator 7.52 describing partnerships that support the sustainable management of forests. These two indicators should be cross-referenced for complementarities.
