Håkan Berglund

Håkan Berglund
Environmental assessment specialist. I work in the fields of ecology, biodiversity conservation and forest management. My main tasks are to initiate, plan and manage environmental assessments made on behalf of Swedish authorities (the Environmental Protection Agency, the Forest Agency and the County Administrative Board) and international organizations (the European Topic Centre). The analytic work includes study design, data collection and compilation, statistical analyses, scientific reviews and syntheses, expert assessments, quality assurance and dissemination of results. I also develop new indicators and analytic methods for monitoring and assessing the conservation status of habitats and species. The results are used for the Article-17 report of forest habitats under EU Habitats Directive, the national Red List and the national environmental objectives system. I also develop guidelines for forest biodiversity conservation and management.
