  3. What is the incentive for being certified by the FSC?

In the first part of this document, we have pointed out that deforestation and loss of terrestrial diversity are serious global problems requiring concerted action. A number of measures have been discussed in the international arena to promote sustainable forest management. The emergence of a global forest regime is one of these consequences. With the Convention on Biological Diversity, the international community adopted a work plan for forest diversity. Besides, the Kyoto protocol has provided credits for planting forests and stimulated the debate between the different stakeholders. Nevertheless, all of these measures have not set up legally binding agreements on forests. Consequently, private forest governance has emerged as potential solution that acts more efficiently. To better understand the functioning of this private governance, we'll examine the Forest Stewardship Council and try to understand its aims, practices and realizations in forest protection.
