Relevance of National Reporting Tables for International Processes

The information in the National Reporting Tables are closely related to ongoing international processes, and are relevant for the countries reporting to different agencies and organizations on international processes, conventions and protocols.

Of particular interest, is the relevance for ongoing processes on Criteria and Indicators for Sustainable Forest Management. FAO has been collaborating with nine ongoing C&I processes, and these have several thematic areas in common.

In the table below is listed the relevance of the National Reporting Tables for the common thematic areas of the Criteria and Indicator processes, as well as their relevance for reporting to international processes, conventions and protocols.
