We summarize the conclusions of a number of contributions to the working groups on jets and high-E phenomena and diffractive hard scattering concerning issues related to the forward phase space region. They imply strong physics reasons to upgrade the HERA detectors in the forward (proton) direction and we recommend such options to be seriously considered, although they may be in conflict with planned luminosity upgrades.
