Joint FOREST EUROPE/UNECE/FAO Questionnaire on pan-European quantitative indicators for Sustainable Forest Management
In November 2013 the UNECE/FAO Forestry and Timber Section in Geneva and the FOREST EUROPE Liaison Unit Madrid launched the “Joint FOREST EUROPE/UNECE/FAO Questionnaire on pan-European quantitative indicators for Sustainable Forest Management”. This new cycle of reporting continues a series of data collections on pan-European forests carried out by UNECE, FAO and FOREST EUROPE. The reporting will be performed according to the pan-European Criteria and Indicators for SFM, endorsed at the Living Forest Summit in Vienna in 2003.
For the first time the new cycle of the pan-European reporting is carried out in parallel with the FAO global Forests Resources Assessment (FRA). Although the FRA and the pan-European reporting remain independent processes, the coordinated reporting will ensure consistency between variables collected by both processes. This will significantly reduce the reporting burden and facilitate the dissemination of reliable messages on pan-European forests and forest management.
Information will cover 28 quantitative indicators reported by the FRA National Correspondents through the Joint Questionnaire. Information for the remaining 7 indicators will be directly obtained from international data providers. The UNECE/FAO Forestry and Timber Section in Geneva and the FOREST EUROPE Liaison Unit Madrid will coordinate the reporting process and support countries in developing their reports. National reports are expected by 31 March 2014.
