The survey will solicit information about: - the public?s knowledge about, and preferences for, forestry and SFM; - the public?s underlying beliefs about sustainability; - how local forests are being used by local people; and, - the public?s opinions on the relative importance of the social, ecological, and economic criteria and indicators.
