Impact Assessment for Managing Intact Forest Landscapes in Canada

Project Description

The assessment looks at the economic, environmental, and social impacts of managing Intact Forest Landscapes (IFLs) in Canada and advances our understanding of the characteristics of Intact Forest Landscapes and the impacts of protecting them, in the short to mid-term.

This project was established as a result of Motion 34 passed at FSC’s General Assembly in 2017 requiring FSC to conduct regional assessments around the world of the short and long-term impacts – both positive and negative – of the management and protection measures of associated with the implementation of Motion 65/2014 and the International Generic Indicators.
