    The aim of the practical guidelines presented in this document is to support the adoption and usability of the criteria and indicators (C&I) for Sustainable Management of Forests and Rangelands (SFRM) adopted by the 22nd Session of the Near East Forestry and Range Commission (NEFRC). The guidelines are based on the review of existing literature and on consultations with national experts and relevant institutions in Morocco, Sudan and Tunisia regarding challenges identified in the use of the prop osed C&I for SFRM. It is clear from the consultations with national experts of the three countries that each of their forest and rangelands departments use sustainability indicators in their work on policy dialogue, advocacy and capacity building related to climate change and REDD+. This document details the seven criteria and 33 indicators which together make up the C&I for SFRM in the NENA region. Parts of this guide are based on the existing set of the C&I for SFRM and on other scientific pu blications of the Forestry Department of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO). Further discussion with resource agencies, forest and rangelands institutions, the environmental community, academia and other key stakeholders is needed to develop and refine linkages between the proposed C&I for SFRM.

    Criteria and indicators have a major role in promoting the implementation of recent global agreements affecting forests, by focusing on measurable results and on follow-up monitoring and reporting. This workshop was the beginning of a broader conversation to enhance the connectedness of sustainable forest management (SFM) indicators and global initiatives related to forests and strengthen the impact of their work.

    A report of the proceedings of the workshop, which was organized in Bhopal, India from 30 November to 3 December 1999, by FAO, UNEP (UN Environment Programme), ITTO (International Tropical Timber Organization), USDA/FS (United States Department of Agriculture Forest Service) and IIFM (Indian Institute of Forest Management). The main participants were representatives of forestry agencies from nine Asian countries with dry forests - Bangladesh, Bhutan, China, India, Mongolia, Myanmar, Nepal, Sri L anka and Thailand. Besides a summary of the discussions and recommendations, the publication lists the eight national-level criteria agreed on at the meeting. The meeting was held to follow up on the recommendation by the 17th session of the Asia Pacific Forestry Commission (APFC) in 1998 to promote better understanding of forest management-evaluation criteria and indicators as a highly useful tool for the sustainable use of the region's forests.
