GREEce: modeliNg of the FOREst SEctor EcoNomy GREEN FORESEEN

Study the consumption of fuelwood by households in Greece and, by doing so, to lay down the foundations for the development of the first Greek Forest Sector Model (GFSM), which will be a partial-equilibrium model of the forest sector. 

Design and carry out a
survey of the fuelwood market in Greece, as well as by analysing national statistics on energy consumption. This will give
insights on all aspects of fuelwood demand and supply and will allow for the characterisation of the illegal logging problem. It
will also assist in the development of the GFSM, as fuelwood constitutes over 65% of total timber production in the country.
The ultimate goal of the GFSM will be to enhance forest management by simulating impacts of policy and market changes
on the sector. An intentional byproduct of the GFSM will be the generation of knowledge that can be utilised by other
models, such as the EC's European Forest Information Scenario Model (EFISCEN).
