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. However, their use in policy and practice is limited, for a range of reasons.

The project was designed to take stock of the status and use of forest indicators globally, and to consider how the full potential of criteria and indicators for sustainable forest management could be mobilized to promote and demonstrate sustainability of forest management, including through a possible global set of SFM indicators.
