Nordic Forestry Ministers Meet in Iceland

The Environment Ministers of the five Nordic Countries are meeting in Iceland to discuss a possible future cooperation on the field of forestry.

Ahead of the meeting Sweden’s Environment Minister Eskil Erlandsson released a statement saying that global warming and water supply are two issues that will have a deep impact on Nordic forestry.

With the five Nordic countries having a major interest in the development of the forest and the industry behind it, they may initiate a joint policy in order to meet future requirements, Erlandsson said. The meeting in Iceland is scheduled to last until Tuesday.
