Kotka III

A third meeting, the "Expert Consultation on Global Forest Resources Assessment 2000", was held in Kotka in 1996. Thirty-two countries sent representatives to the meeting, as did various NGOs and International Organisations. Following Kotka III, a FRA 2000 strategic plan was developed, which provided the overall conceptual framework for the assessment.Recommendationsmade in Kotka III were then endorsed by the FAO Committee on Forestry (COFO) in 1997 and became part of the baseline requirements for the background of FRA 2000.
