    This regional study presents an overview of the socio-economic importance and ecological impact of the use of non-wood forest products (NWFP) in Africa. The document consists of two main parts: i) presentation of background information on the programme activities and analysis of the available information on the regional and sub-regional level (both in English and in French); and ii) presentation of data on NWFP on the national level (so-called “country profiles”, available in either English or F rench). The country profiles were originally compiled to be made available on the FAO homepage. However, taking into consideration the limited access to the Internet in various countries, it has been decided to publish, in addition, a hardcopy version of the country profiles and to add a regional and sub-regional analysis of the data. Most of the data presented in this report are indicative figures, which have been collected in published and unpublished reports, and therefore do not re present official statistics. The results presented show that qualitative and quantitative information on NWFP on the national level is still weak. It is hoped that this report will support the on-going process of data improvement on NWFP. Improved data is considered to be essential to ensure that the use and importance of NWFP is adequately taken into consideration by decision-makers, land-use planners, politicians, or other concerned experts. Additional information and comments from readers to improve data on NWFP in African countries would be very much appreciated.

    This regional study presents an overview of the socio-economic importance of the use of non-wood forest products (NWFP) in 15 countries of Tropical Asia. The document consists of two main parts: (1) presentation of background information on the programme activities and methodology and an analysis of the available information at the regional level; and (2) presentation of data on NWFP at the national level (so-called "country profiles").

    Data collection and analysis related to non-wood forest products - a pilot study in Suriname 2002

    The project Data Collection and Analysis for Sustainable Forest Management in ACP Countries - Linking National and International Efforts (GCP/INT/679/CE) was carried out in the context of the European Commission (EC) - FAO Partnership Programme in order to promote the sustainable use of trees and forests in African and Caribbean countries. The project aimed to contribute to the development of policies which would integrate in a balanced way the socio-economic and ecological aspects of the forest ry sector.1 The use of non-wood forest products (NWFP) was studied through two main activities: 1. The documentation of information on the socio-economic importance and ecological impact of the use of NWFP in African and Caribbean countries. The results are presented in various working papers (FAO, 2001; FAO, in prep.) and on the Internet.2 2. The development of methodologies for improved collection, analysis and maintenance of statistical data related to NWFP. These methodologie s should: • provide reasonable estimates on the production, consumption and trade in NWFP; • be widely applicable and relevant to other Caribbean countries; • be cost effective, flexible and feasible given the limited human resources available. Pilot studies on NWFP were carried out in Cameroon, Madagascar, Uganda, Suriname and Zimbabwe.
