    Status of, and trends in, the Global Core Set of Forest-related Indicators 2022

    The strong commitment of the international community, and especially the CPF members, to provide the information necessary for monitoring progress towards global goals, targets and indicators in a comprehensive, efficient, timely and meaningful way led to the idea of developing a global core set of forest-related indicators (GCS). The aim was to simplify and harmonize concepts and terminology while respecting the needs of all potential users. The concrete work on the GCS was initiated in 2016 through an organization-led initiative on the development of global forest indicators. Following the recommendation of this initiative, the CPF members established a GCS taskforce, which developed the GCS. The GCS was presented to the United Nations Forum on Forests (UNFF) and FAO’s Committee on Forestry, which welcomed the progress made in developing the GCS and acknowledged its value for assessing progress and better focusing data-collection efforts to reduce duplication. The two bodies also encouraged the application of those indicators that are ready to use and requested the CPF to continue developing the remaining indicators, particularly those that may require additional efforts but are manageable through various data sources. This is an accompanying document of the FAO report, State of the World’s Forests 2022 (SOFO 2022). It provides an overview of the GCS and presents the latest data on the status and trends of the 21 indicators. SOFO 2022, which examines three potential forest pathways for addressing global challenges, is available separately.

    The overall meeting objective was to identify ways and means to reduce country reporting burden and improve the quality of data and analysis, and in this context, the meeting sought to accomplish the following specific objectives: Provide an update to CPF TF members on progress made on joint data collection through the Collaborative Forest Resources Questionnaire produced by FAO and regional data collection partners. Update on CBD, UNFF, UNFCCC, ITTO, and UNCCD plans to harmonize country reporting requirements (variables and timing) to their respective bodies. Explore the potential of the Collaborative Forest Resources Questionnaire for streamlining forest related reporting, and the contributions of intergovernmental bodies (the CBD, UNFF, UNFCCC, ITTO, and UNCCD) to support joint data collection and analysis.

    Evaluación de los Recursos Forestales Mundiales - FRA 2020 – Directrices y especificaciones Versión 1.0
    Documento de Trabajo No. 189
    2018
    Ever since its foundation, FAO has regularly collected, analysed, interpreted and disseminated information on the status and trends of the world’s forests resources through the Global Forest Resources Assessment (FRA). The scope, the methodology and the periodicity of the assessments have evolved over time to respond to changing information needs, to increase the level of participation of the countries, as well as to streamline and harmonize definitions and reporting in collaboration with other organizations and international reporting processes. Since FRA 2000, assessments have been conducted every five years. The work of preparation for FRA 2020 initiated with an internal evaluation of the FRA 2015 reporting process, followed by a user survey. The results of the internal evaluation and the feedbacks of a number of national correspondents and other FRA users that participated to the FRA 2015 survey, have helped the FRA secretariat to shape the scope and the reporting content of FRA 2020. These were then further defined in consultation with other teams of the FAO Forestry Department, the FRA Advisory Group, the Collaborative Forest Resources Questionnaire (CFRQ1) and the FAO/UNECE Team of Specialists on Sustainable Forest Management.
