Monitoring forest and land cover changes is indispensable for sustainable management of natural resources, biodiversity conservation, ecological protection and developing sustainable livelihoods, particularly for a populated country like Bangladesh.  Land cover and forest monitoring activities are part of the Bangladesh Forest Inventory (BFI) carried out by the Bangladesh Forest Department (BFD). The BFI provides information for international reporting and contributes to the achievements of national targets such as Sustainable Development Goal 15 – Life on Land.  With the aim of assessing changes of land cover, forest and other natural resources over time, the BFD with the technical support of Food...
Since its inception in 2008, the UN-REDD Programme has supported inclusive, gender-equitable policy formulation and decision making for national and sub-national REDD+ processes. This approach is based on the recognition that the people who live within or in close proximity to forests, and whose livelihoods depend directly on forests, are best positioned to protect and sustainably manage them. Their perspectives and proposals deserve primary consideration. To underpin this approach, the UN-REDD Programme has integrated representatives from indigenous communities and civil society into its national programmes and processes, ensuring their full and effective participation.   More concretely, the Programme has pioneered rights instruments,...

However, given the increasing degradation of bamboo caused by...
The Government of Liberia in partnership in with the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) have launched the final phase of the National Forest Inventory (NFI) in Bong and Grand Bassa Counties. According to FAO’s Global Forest Resources Assessment 2015, 43 percent of Liberia is covered with forests which a large portion of the country’s rural population depends on for their livelihoods. The NFI is, therefore, an important tool in monitoring changes in land use and providing national estimates of forest resources in Liberia. The information produced is key for sustainable forest management activities that will, in future, benefit...
