In this 2012 edition of Moving Forward, FAO Forestry is pleased to present a selection of the work it undertook in the 2010-2011 biennium for the benefit of the global forestry community.

The FAO Forestry Programme encompasses a vast range of activities and projects, of which this booklet presents only a sample. In all regions of the world, the Programme is helping to implement sustainable forest management and boost the livelihoods of forest-dependent people.

It does this, in part, by improving information on forests. In 2010, for example, FAO published another of its acclaimed global forest resources assessments, which has been a key element of its work since the Organization's inception. In 2011 it also released the results of the first-ever global-level remote sensing survey of forests.
