Global Forest Resources Assessments

Pan-European partnership

Since the endorsement of the FOREST EUROPE Criteria and Indicators on sustainable forest management, FAO, FOREST EUROPE and UNECE have been working together on the reporting on quantitative indicators in the pan-European region. The three secretariats (FOREST EUROPE liaison units, FRA and the Joint UNECE/FAO Forestry and Timber Section), together with experts and National Correspondents, have jointly developed related reporting systems, collected and reviewed national data, and managed and disseminated collected information. This cooperation was advanced further in the recent 2020 pan-European data collection process, which was coordinated by the Global Forest Resources Assessment 2020.

All data provided by the National Correspondents in response to the joint FAO/FOREST EUROPE/UNECE 2020 questionnaire on the quantitative pan-European indicators for sustainable forest management is made available online through the interactive Joint pan-European dataset.
