Cork oak forests and ecosystem services: tools in developing markets

Producing, processing and consuming cork is beneficial for the protection of highly valuable ecosystems, i.e. cork oak woodlands, whose conservation heavily depends on the persistence of human intervention in the forest. This two-day event will discuss the role of cork oak woodlands in providing Ecosystem Services (ES) and showcase tools that contribute to sustain rural livelihoods, forest owners, forest managers and industries engaged in sustainable forest management (SFM).  Recognition and marketing of ES can play a key role in supporting rural incomes, encourage land stewardship and therefore guarantee cork oak woodland conservation. However, there is ongoing scepticism on the effectiveness of the existing tools in compensating ES provision. For this reason, examples and best practices from across the Mediterranean will be presented, along with the local enabling framework conditions needed to support them.
