International partners work together to share forest products information 30 January 2015

The Intersecretariat Working Group on Forest Sector Statistics (IWG) concluded its 28th meeting at the ITTO Headquarters in Yokohama. The IWG brings together representatives of ITTO, the FAO Forestry Department, the UN-ECE Forestry and Timber Section and Eurostat, with over 20 years of collaboration on collecting, analyzing and disseminating forest products statistics.

In 2014, data on over 50 forest products were jointly collected and shared. These data are presented for all countries and territories in the world and can be accessed through websites of the partner organizations. Three workshops were also jointly held to improve the capacity of 33 countries to provide statistics for policy-makers and analysts. These took place in Ankara, Kunming and Johannesburg.
