National Forest Monitoring

Country support

From Bangladesh to Costa Rica, Mongolia to Ethiopia, FAO is providing support and guidance to countries around the world, as they develop and strengthen their national forest monitoring systems. As we know, national forest monitoring generates transparent and accurate information regarding forests and land, which allows countries to protect and manage their forest resources more sustainably. Forest-positive actions and policies subsequently reduce food insecurity, alleviate poverty, promote gender equality, and much more. 

FAO’s support in capacity development and technological innovation in forest and land monitoring processes and strategies goes beyond the map below. FAO’s data collection, management and processing platforms, like Open Foris and SEPAL, allow users in more than 180 countries to monitor forest types and ecosystems: from boreal forests and steppes to tropical jungles and savannas.
