A new policy snapshot publication gives an overview of Nordic policy successes and barriers for accelerating Wood in Construction and sets out six challenges that policymakers, and the wood construction industry must tackle going forward.
- What are the policies and initiatives in place that have helped to spur timber construction?
- What is hindering progress?
- And are planned new policies sufficient to see the change needed?
These are the questions that this policy brief sets out to answer.
Whilst the Nordic region has many shared characteristics, it is important to understand the different needs and abilities of each country before coming to conclusions at a regional level.
This policy snapshot gives a run-down of each Nordic country, taking the temperature of the policies, initiatives and underlying characteristics of each nation, tying together into the common challenges and opportunities that the Nordics face together to accelerate the use of wood in construction.
We present not the typical recommendations for policymakers, but instead six unanswered questions that must be addressed going forward.
