    Global Forest Resources Assessment 2020
    Main report
    2020
    FAO completed its first assessment of the world’s forest resources in 1948. At that time, its major objective was to collect information on available timber supply to satisfy post-war reconstruction demand. Since then, the Global Forest Resources Assessment (FRA) has evolved into a comprehensive evaluation of forest resources and their condition, management and uses, covering all the thematic elements of sustainable forest management. This, the latest of these assessments, examines the status of, and trends in, forest resources over the period 1990–2020, drawing on the efforts of hundreds of experts worldwide. The production of FRA 2020 also involved collaboration among many partner organizations, thereby reducing the reporting burden on countries, increasing synergies among reporting processes, and improving data consistency. The results of FRA 2020 are available in several formats, including this report and an online database containing the original inputs of countries and territories as well as desk studies and regional and global analyses prepared by FAO. I invite you to use these materials to support our common journey towards a more sustainable future with forests.

    Global Forest Resources Assessment Update 2005. Guidelines for Country Reporting to FRA 2005 2004
    Global forest resources assessments have been carried out by FAO since 1947 (FAO, 1948), practically since FAO was formed. The mandate to carry out these assessments stems both from the basic statutes of FAO, and from the decision of the Committee on Forestry (COFO). Global assessment reports have been published at approximately ten year intervals. The latest of these reports, FRA 2000, was published in 2001 (FAO, 2001). The Global Forest Resources Assessment Update for 2005, or FRA 2005, was re quested by COFO 2001 and COFO 2003, where it was recommended that global forest resources assessments should: (a) be carried out at 5 year intervals, (b) be related to international forestry processes and (c) be implemented as a broad based assessment.

    Strengthening Forest Education Globally to Promote Sustainable Management of Forests - GCP/GLO/044/GER 2023

    As deforestation continues and the disconnection between people, nature and forests grows, education is fundamental to achieving sustainable forest management. Yet it must keep pace with changing demands on forests and increasing pressures on forest resources. Experts have raised concerns that education dealing with forests is insufficient and outdated in many places, failing to give current and future generations the awareness and understanding of forests they need. New education offensives are necessary to address these challenges. The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) launched this project to catalyse , accelerate and enhance broad efforts in forest education in developing countries and to counteract the considerable deficiencies in forest education in many parts of the world. A partnership between FAO, the International Tropical Timber Organization and the International Union of Forest Research Organizations, the project is designed to lay the foundation for a longer term effort in forest education, envisaged as a Joint Initiative of the Collaborative Partnership on Forests (CPF).
