The growing realization that the fate of forests will be determined by factors outside the forests and the forestry sector has prompted individuals and institutions to look beyond the immediate causes of forest health and degradation in order to unravel not-so-obvious and often difficult-to-establish links between macro-level variables and forest condition. Inspired by the same realization, this paper seeks to explore the links between macro-economic trends and forests in order to develop scenarios of the future macro-economic environment in the Asia-Pacific region and how this will likely affect forests and the forestry sector.
