Abstract / Description of output

Chapter 2 explores recreation and tourism practices in forest areas in the Atlantic region, which refers to the geographical area close to the North Sea and the Atlantic Ocean. The Atlantic countries described in this section are Belgium (Flanders and Wallonia), Denmark, Iceland, Ireland, the Netherlands, and the United Kingdom (England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, although there is no specific data for Northern Ireland in the survey) (Fig. 2.1). In this chapter, instead of always focussing on the level of the country, we sometimes refer to a region within a country. This region might be largely political-administrative independent or geomorphologically distinct. Good examples are the regions of Flanders and Wallonia in Belgium and Scotland, England and Wales in the United Kingdom (UK), where there are separate administrations and forestry policies, organisations and support systems. We have chosen to describe them predominantly at the country level.
