Forest areas are currently facing major challenges that must be met in order to ensure that they can continue to provide the different economic, social, environmental, and territorial functions that they perform. In this scenario, interesting innovation strategies are being designed and implemented. Innovations of a technological nature are becoming more prevalent, but innovations of a social, institutional, or governance nature are also emerging.
Forest policies are no stranger to this, and are decisive in promoting and accompanying these innovations. Likewise, the multidimensional nature of the problems described above also requires consideration of the needs and opportunities for the cooperation, complementarity, and coordination of different policies.
These issues related to innovation strategies in forest areas and their relationship with forest policies will be addressed in the Special Issue, to which we encourage you to send your papers.
