Specification of National Reporting Table T13

T13 Non-wood forest products removal

T13.1 Rationale

The information on removal of 'Non-wood forest products' (NWFP) from Forest and Other wooded land demonstrates the potential of forests to provide NWFP, both as important commodities for national and international markets, and for the livelihood of local and indigenous people dependent on them. This information indicates the priority NWFPs deserve in development of national policies and management strategies.

Notes:

  1. Reporting unit is mass (tonnes or kg) for all plant products and animal products except hides and skins that should be reported in units. The country must give the scale factor used for each category.
  2. In case that mass figures are not available, volume figures can be reported, but then the reporting unit must be in m3 and well defined (solid volume, piled volume, etc.).
  3. To take care of annual variations, the figures are an average of five year period for any reference year 1988 to 1992 for 1990 and 1998 to 2002 for 2002. The figures for 2005 are forecasts...
  4. Removal should be reported independently whether it is for commercial or non-commercial use.
  5. Only removal from Forest and Other wooded land should be reported. If a country has only global figures referring to all types of land for a certain product, it is necessary to estimate and document the share that correspond to Forest / OWL.
  6. Countries should report in an appendix, the most important species used for each product category.

Internal consistency

The figures reported in this table are related to the National reporting table T13.
