Forest monitoring and assessment
Knowledge reference for national forest assessments
The Knowledge Reference for National Forest Assessments was developed jointly by FAO, IUFRO Division 4, and the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences provides a valuable 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.
A new version of the Knowledge Reference for national forest assessment [KR2] is currently under finalization.
