1. Wood from planted forests is estimated to supply more than a third of global industrial demand currently, and this proportion is projected to increase 2. It is expected that food, fibre, and fuel production will compete intensively for limited land resources in tropical regions over the next decades 3. Due to expected increases in the number of small and medium sized-tree growers, technological, silvicultural and market access opportunities may require new innovations 4. Although large-scale tree plantations will continue to expand, associated environmental and social issues will remain strongly contested in many countries 5. Realization of the potential contribution of planted forests to sustainable development objectives is constrained by policy settings and instruments that are generally inadequate or inappropriate 6. A number of global processes have sought to build understanding of and support for new approaches to planted forests, but have not been research-oriented
