The Montreal process of criteria and indicators for the conservation and sustainable management of temperate and boreal forests

The Montreal process is the result of CSCE Seminar of Experts on Sustainable Development of Temperate and Boreal Forests, held in Montreal in September-October 1993.

The Montreal Process covers Temperate and Boreal forests located outside Europe. It encompasses forests in the northern as well as the southern hemisphere and includes both developing and developed countries.

The 12 participating countries have agreed on a set of seven non-legally binding national level criteria and 67 indicators (Santiago Declaration, 1995). Participating countries recently agreed to review and consider possible elements for criteria and indicators at the forest unit level; these are currently under discussion and development.

Member countries

Argentina, Australia, Canada, Chile, China, Japan, Mexico, New Zealand, Republic of Korea, Russian Federation, United States of America and Uruguay.
