In the Wood Position Paper, the Wood Working Group established efforts to promote the introduction of using timber structures in China. To enhance international cooperation, the Working Group works closely with European Wood. Topics recently discussed include technology transfer and knowledge-sharing with relevant central Chinese ministries and appointed expert bodies such as official national standardisation committees. The aim is to eliminate or relax technical barriers and to support development of building codes and standards so that wood can be used more efficiently in building and constructions in China with a focus on modern wood solutions, such as glulam, cross laminated timber and other engineered wood.

Building with Wood addresses opportunities for the further use of wood in construction in China. This book was written for China so that they might assess and discuss these opportunities, with full recognition of the advantages and the limitations of wood used in construction. Building with Wood does not pretend that wood construction offers a panacea to solve all China's construction or housing requirements. Rather, it focuses on areas where wood construction can offer real benefits to Chinese society at large and to the many individuals and families who will need comfortable and high performance housing within their economic means.

Wood is an extraordinary material. Naturally renewable, it grows in ever-increasing abundance in Europe. It is beautiful, light and strong to build with, warm and welcoming to live with. And it offers a simple way to reduce the CO2 emissions that are the main cause of Climate Change. The purpose of this book is to set out the environmental arguments for using wood as one way of reducing Climate Change, at the same time as putting the industry's economic contribution in context.

It is believed that Sweden can adopt a world-leading position by demonstrating Swedish community development which is sustainable in the long term, in combination with Swedish sustainable forestry management. This book is designed to inspire politicians, property owners, entrepreneurs, architects and engineers; in other words, to provide inspiration to everyone involved in community development. We hope that it will be able to provide assistance for new development work and change processes all over the country.
