    An assessment of uptake of the Global Core Set of Forest-related Indicators 2022

    The twenty-fifth session of the Committee on Forestry (CPF) requested FAO to analyse - in collaboration with members of the CPF - the uptake of the Global Core Set of forest related Indicators (GCS) by other reporting processes and the extent to which they decrease reporting burden on countries. To respond to this request, conducted a user survey among the CPF partners and other forest data and information reporting processes. The survey received 26 responses from 22 organizations, with 100 percent coverage of CPF Members. The survey results show that the majority of the indicators are considered "of interest" to the various responding organizations, and that none of the indicators is considered superfluous or unnecessary. For most indicators, less than half of the organizations collect data themselves, leaving that role to organizations with the appropriate mandate and resources. In all cases, organizations that collected data cooperated with others, notably through instruments like the CFRQ and the Joint Forest Sector Questionnaire (JFSQ). The organizations that did not collect data themselves mostly used data from a trusted partner, representing a significant reduction of the reporting burden on countries.

    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.

    Forests play a vital role in food security and nutrition, providing food and livelihoods to many of the poorest people on earth as well as environmental services that are crucial for agricultural production (State of the World’s Forests 2016, chapter 4, provides more detail). For this reason, the Collaborative Partnership on Forests (CPF) is partnering with the FSN Forum to host an online consultation on the development of a global core set of forest-related indicators, for use not only in the f orest sector, but also in a broader context.
