Strengthening criteria and indicators – important tools for sustainable forest management 23 January 2015

Criteria and indicators (C&I) are crucial tools to promote and demonstrate sustainable forest management. This was the message of a global expert workshop, held 15-16 January 2015 at FAO Rome, Italy. The experts identified three areas of work for forest indicators - strengthen effective monitoring and reporting of forest contributions to Sustainable Development Goals and targets, UNFF and relevant Rio Conventions; further develop practical C&I tools for different user groups and purposes; and contribute to cross-sectoral sustainability assessments across different land uses.
