Working papers

The working paper series are designed to reflect the progress of activities and programmes of the FAO Forestry Department. They provide up-to-date reports on issues and activities for decision-makers, planners, managers, practitioners, researchers and academics and are published to stimulate discussion and application where appropriate. They may also provide a forum for the rapid release of preliminary findings.

Not all working papers are published in multiple languages.
