Global Forest Resources Assessments

Pan-European partnership

Ever since FOREST EUROPE endorsed criteria and indicators (C&I) for sustainable forest management, FAO, FOREST EUROPE and UNECE have been working together to report 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) have collaborated with  experts and national correspondents to develop related reporting systems, collect and review national data, and manage and disseminate collected information. This collaboration was further developed 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.
