    This fact sheet describes the courses that aim to provide guidance on the use of forestry modules to collect data on the socioeconomic contributions of forests and non-forests environments to household welfare and livelihoods. This course presents the background and relevance of forest-related questions in household surveys. It also indicates how to use the forestry modules for Living Standards Measurement Survey (LSMS) type surveys and for other users.

    Better understanding the contributions of forests and trees in household welfare, livelihoods and poverty reduction is crucial for achieving several Sustainable Development Goals. Yet, systematic comparison of human dependence on forests and trees has often been focusing on case studies. Developing nationally- representative figures on the contributions of forest and wild products in households throughout countries requires a more systematic approach across vegetation/forest types, ecoregions and different factors influencing the levels of resource use. Enabling thereby consistent measurement of such contributions at national level could lead to more informed policymaking and better capture of the true value of forests and trees in a range of metrics, such as national poverty measurements and GDP. With this view, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), the Center for International Forestry Research (CIFOR), the International Forestry Resources and Institutions (IFRI) Network, and the World Bank's Living Standards Measurement Study (LSMS) team and Program on Forests (PROFOR) developed specialized forestry modules and the guidance on using them, particularly for LSMS- type surveys. These modules, covering 15 thematic areas, are expected to help in filling current information gaps concerning the relationship of forests and trees to household welfare and livelihoods. This publication, targeted primarily at national statistical offices, explains how these modules can be used, including customizing them according to policy and research needs of different users. It also briefly covers the results of the pilot tests of the modules in Indonesia, United Republic of Tanzania and Nepal.
