FAO and the SDGs. Indicators: Measuring Up to the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development

Strengthening Criteria and Indicators for Sustainable Forest Management and their use in policy and practice: GCP/GLO/503/GER

Strengthening sustainable forest management Over the last 25 years criteria and indicators for sustainable forest management (C&I for SFM) have become a vital tool for developing a common understanding of the key components of sustainable forest management. They have been adopted and widely applied particularly for international and national reporting and for forest certification. They have undoubtedly helped to define SFM, providing a framework for discussion, and have stimulated improved monitoring.
