    Forest assessment and monitoring 2002
    Also available in:

    The Global Forest Resources Assessment 2000 (FRA 2000) is now completed, but work has already begun on the next global assessment. The expert consultation "Global Forest Resources Assessments - Linking National and International Efforts", known as Kotka IV, brought together international experts in July 2002 to address future concepts and strategies. The articles in this issue of Unasylva are adapted for a wider audience from papers prepared for the meeting. Without going into technical detail, they explore links among assessment and monitoring, national and international information needs, criteria and indicators for sustainable forest management, and reporting of forest-related information to international instruments. The technical details can be found on the FAO Web site (www.fao.org/forestry) and will be published in the Kotka IV proceedings.

    Assessing carbon stocks and modelling win-win scenarios of carbon sequestration though land-use changes 2004
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    This publications presents a methodology and software for assessing carbon sequestration that were developed and tested in pilot field studies in Mexico and Cuba. The models and tools enable the analysis of land use change scenarios in order to identifyin a given area (watershed or district) land use alternatives and land management practices that simultaneously maximize food production, maximize soil carbon sequestration, maximize biodiversity conservation and minimize land degradation. The obj ective is to develop and implement win-win" that options that satisfy the multiple goals of farmers, land users and other stakeholders in relation to food security, carbon sequestration, bodiversity and land conservation.

    Report of the CFU/FAO Fisheries Statistics and Data Management Workshop. University of the West Indies, Cave Hill Campus, Barbados, 10–22 March 2003. 2004
    Also available in:

    The CARICOM Fisheries Unit (CFU) and the FAO collaborated in providing fisheries data-managers from the CARIFORUM (CARICOM plus the Dominican Republic and the British Dependent Territories of Anguilla, British Virgin Islands and Turks and Caicos Islands and Montserrat), with guidance to improve their collecting, processing, storage and reporting capabilities of information on the status and trends of their marine capture fisheries. The participants received step-by-step guidance on the meth odological and operational concepts contained in the FAO Fisheries Technical Paper No. 425, Sample-based fishery surveys: A technical handbook (2002). They were also trained to use a CFU-developed data storage software – CARIFIS – to query, analyse and report on their national fisheries statistics. A proposal to expand the existing data collection systems to capture the social and economic information about the national fisheries sector was presented and discussed. The discussions that fol lowed the presentations on “Sample-based fishery surveys” identified issues such as multiple fishing gear, migration of fishing units among multiple landing sites and multiple landing by the same fishing units as constraints in previously used national frame surveys. Suggestions for refining CARIFIS and correcting errors/omissions in the software were collected after the practical demonstrations. Similarly, participant observations and suggestions on the proposal to expand existing data collect ion systems to incorporate social and economic information on the fisheries sector were collected.
