FPS COST Action E33
Forests for Recreation and Nature Tourism (FORREC)

The main objective of the Action is to improve the quality of information available to policy makers and forest managers on the recreation and tourism benefits of forestry and to increase the cost-effectiveness of techniques for delivering recreation and tourism benefits from forestry. The Action aims specifically to improve knowledge of the benefits to urbanized societies, to improve the understanding of the economic and social impacts of forest recreation and nature tourism in Europe, and to assess its potential as a tool for rural development.
