Forest Biodiversity Programme for Southern Finland (METSO)
METSO, or the Forest Biodiversity Programme for Southern Finland, combines forest biodiversity conservation and maintenance with commercial use. The programme is aimed at halting the decline in forest species and habitats, and establishing favourable trends in forest biodiversity. It is set to run until 2025.
METSO is coordinated by the Ministry of the Environment, in cooperation with the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry.
