Boosting transparency of forest data
Recently FAO hold the webinar “Forest data for climate action: the importance of legal and institutional frameworks”
Forests, and forest monitoring, in particular, are critical to ensuring that countries stay on target with emission reduction goals within the framework of the Paris Agreement. A robust National Forest Monitoring Systems (NFMS) can support the formulation, monitoring, and adjustment of sub- and national forest-related policies, inform citizens and stakeholders and help track progress towards sustainable forest management and reducing emissions related to forest loss. The institutionalization of NFMS is a crucial next step necessary to enhance country ownership and pave the way for more streamlined, sustainable, and transparent use of forest data.
The FAO webinar “Forest data for climate action: the importance of legal and institutional frameworks” will highlight how a legal basis, financial commitment, and a permanent institutional framework are vital to ensuring efficient implementation and operation of an NFMS.
