Integration of private sector and enhancement of industrial value-chains are among the crucial elements of sustainability transformations in the forest-based sector. By identifying and evaluating the strategies and relationships of power between actors with different objectives, values and aspirations, we increase our understanding on the future trajectory of the forest-based sectors and their sustainability. Furthermore, we apply integrative approaches to analyze forest-based good and service markets, including how the market dynamics are influenced by policies and changing societal values.
