WWF has published a new White Paper to help develop regional approaches to protect and manage intact Forest landscapes (IFL).  This paper offers WWF´s vision and recommendations on how comparative analyses of alternative land use options for IFL located within FSC-certified forest management units (FMU) could be conducted, highlighting two concrete case studies (Russia and Guatemala) that demonstrate this approach.

It concludes that FSC can greatly assist stakeholders and standard-setting groups to conduct regional comparative analyses of land use options by offering sound guidance and assistance.
