FAO is delighted to dedicate its next NFO-Technical Network Webinar to “FAO Open Foris tools in action in the Myanmar National Forest Inventory”. The session will share the latest updates from Myanmar’s NFI and demonstrate how Open Foris tools have been used in field data collection, management, processing and reporting in Myanmar and what benefits these open-source tools can provide for large area forest inventories. Date:   Thursday, 3rd December 2020 Time:   09:30 – 10:45AM CET (Rome)    |     15:00 – 16:15PM GMT+6:30 (Naypyidaw) Language: English Registration:  https://bit.ly/OF_Myanmar (The maximum number of participants is 500, remember to register and join in...
The National Forest Institute (Instituto Nacional de Bosques - INAB) and the Protected Areas National Council (Consejo Nacional de Áreas Protegidas - CONAP) of Guatemala, with the support of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), have finalized the methodological and technological tools for implementing the second National Forest Inventory of Guatemala. The objective of the National Forest Inventory is to determine the current state of the goods and services of forests and trees outside forests at the national level, by way of a comprehensive and multi-purpose evaluation that is replicable and provides strategic information for the country. “The...
While necessary, it is not always easy to get project development inputs from a wide range of stakeholders, particularly for projects that cover multiple countries and languages. Such was the challenge for the project: Global Transformation of Forests for People and Climate: a focus on West Africa. This five-year project (2019-2023) implemented by FAO in collaboration with the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) and with the financial support of the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency, aims to support the implementation of the ECOWAS Convergence Plan for the Sustainable Management and Use of Forest Ecosystems in West Africa (See...
Recognizing the role of forests in combatting climate change, many African countries are implementing strategies to halt deforestation and manage their forest resources sustainably. For these countries, National Forest Monitoring Systems (NFMS) are essential, as they provide information necessary for application in creating national forest policies, planning and sustainable development. Forest monitoring systems enable measurement, reporting and verification (MRV) functions and aim to produce high-quality, reliable data on forests, including forest-carbon estimates, that are critical to the battle against climate change caused in part by deforestation and degradation of forests. To support countries in Africa in implementing forest monitoring activities, FAO is...
The Central African Forest Initiative (CAFI) and the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) kicked-off a project aimed at the development of a standardized methodology, to assess drivers of deforestation and forest degradation in 6 countries in Central Africa. Deforestation and forest degradation are complex transboundary processes with many direct as well as underlying causes. A good understanding of why and where forest disturbances occur is instrumental for the development of targeted policies and actions aiming to reduce the loss of forests and the associated carbon emissions.  However, the lack of updated data reflecting the recent trends on tree...
