The UNECE/FAO Forest Products Annual Market Review, 2008-2009 provides general and statistical information on forest products markets in 2008 and early 2009 in the UN Economic Commission for Europe region (Europe, North America and Eastern Europe, Caucasus and Central Asia). The Review begins with an overview chapter, followed by a chapter on the policy implications of market developments, then a description of the economic situation and factors affecting forest products markets in the region. Market developments in five standard sectors, based on annual country-supplied statistics, are described for wood raw materials, sawn softwood, sawn hardwood, wood-based panels and paper and paperboard. Regular chapters discuss markets for wood energy, certified forest products, value-added wood products and tropical timber. In each chapter production, trade and consumption are analysed and relevant development on specific markets and policies are included.
