The forestry sector, public forest policy and forest administration in many countries are currently involved in a process of change. Public budget crises, inefficient and obsolete administrative structures, changes in social requirements with respect to forests and low timber prices have all given rise to persistent requests for fundamental administrative reform in the forestry sector. New Public Management (NPM) has been gaining acceptance as the most common concept in this context. Originally developed in New Zealand, this concept has been the inspiration behind widespread reform in all kinds of countries in East Asia, North America and Europe. We would like to present reforms implemented by forest authorities in Germany and Switzerland as examples of such authorities which have already gained experience with elements of New Public Management.
