    The main objective of the project was the promotion of multifunctional sustainable forest management (SFM) to conserve biodiversity, enhance and conserve carbon stocks, and secure forest ecosystem services in productive forest landscapes. It was designed around three project components: i) an enabling environment for multifunctional SFM; ii) multifunctional forest management; and iii) monitoring and evaluation (M&E) and the dissemination of lessons learned.The project was highly relevant to international and local policy agenda priorities, as it involved the forestry sector and maximized its role in environmental protection and sustainable development. However, project ownership was concentrated among stakeholders from the state forestry sector. Other important private and non-forestry actors were only involved at minor levels. Important outputs on data collection were: the Integrated Forest Inventory System (IFIS) and the National Forest Inventory (NFI), both important contributions to SFM in Serbia. However, the evaluation found that the legal institutionalization of results in the form of new legislation was not realized during the project’s life cycle.

    Working with Costa Rica, Papua New Guinea proposed the concept of reducing emissions from deforestation and forest degradation (REDD+) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) in 2005. Ever since, the country has continued to prepare for REDD+ and has worked to establish a National Forest Monitoring System (NFMS). These actions are vital, as accurate information regarding forest status and change is essential for sustainable management of the nation's forest. The Climate Change and Development Authority (CCDA) and the Papua New Guinea Forest Authority (PNGFA) are the core-implementing partners that jointly developed the country’s NFMS, and they receive support from a number of stakeholders and other actors, including FAO. This case study reviews the main objectives of the county's NFMS, highlights key stakeholders and defines successes and challenges of implementation. Ultimately, this case study serves as a reference for other countries implementing NFMS and preparing for REDD+.
