Advancing sustainable forest management requires that informed decisions can be made at the national level, and that progress towards chosen goals can be monitored. This, in turn, requires that effective national forest inventories and assessments are in place, to serve national policy processes.
This Knowledge Reference for National Forest Assessments provides a world-wide resource for foresters, scientists, teachers and other stakeholders. It is used in FAO's support to develop and implement national forest assessments in developing countries, and can be used for free, for example as teaching material.
The Knowledge Reference is developed jointly by FAO, IUFRO Division 4, and the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences.
