Peatlands cover only 3 percent of the world's surface yet contain as much carbon as all of its vegetation, dramatically underscoring their pivotal role in global climate regulation. Their degradation, by drainage or fire or other forces, triggers their conversion from slow carbon sinks into fast sources capable of releasing carbon stored over millennia in a few decades. To avoid their degradation and effectively plan their restoration, peatlands should be urgently mapped and monitored.To help member states on this complex task, FAO today launched Peatland mapping and monitoring, a practical publication full of accessible technical information about the world's peatlands and recommendations...
Uganda’s lush tropical jungles, rainforests, savannahs, lakes and rivers are home to an astonishing array of biodiversity. In addition to supporting wildlife, so vital for the country's future heritage and tourist industry, Uganda's forest resources are an essential foundation for the country's climate change commitments as well as livelihoods of forest-dependent communities. However, these valuable forest resources are disappearing rapidly. According to Uganda’s Forest Reference Level submitted in 2017, deforestation in Uganda is occurring at a rate of 50,147 hectares annually, which creates emissions equivalent to 8,253,982 tons of CO2. If this rate continues unabated, most of the forested area of...

A one-day inception meeting of the FAO/GEF project “Building global capacity to increase transparency in the forest sector (CBIT-Forest)” has taken place at the FAO Headquarters in Rome, Italy on 19 February 2020. The workshop gathered 20 participants representing organizations and FAO departments, including forestry, climate change and capacity development, involved in the implementation of the project. After a round of introductions, a brief presentation on the history and work of the Capacity-building Initiative for Transparency (CBIT) Trust Fund was delivered by Jeff Griffin, Senior Coordinator of the GEF Unit at FAO. Afterwards, Julian Fox, the Team Leader of the National Forest Monitoring Team presented...
It is often acknowledged that making decisions based on scientific evidence is good practice and that, therefore, providing decision-makers with reliable information is an important development strategy. This is also true in the forest sector, where forest monitoring has often had the explicit or implicit ambition to inform policy-making. At the country level, there are various examples of how links between forest monitoring and policy-making can be established. Viet Nam, for example, experienced a shift in its forestry sector in the early 1990s as a result of policy efforts to accelerate the agricultural transition and expand a sustainable forest industry. With...
