Abstract Share this page

FAO's Global Forest Resources Assessment is designed to serve countries, international processes and the public by providing information that can be used in policy-making, planning and evaluation of progress in achieving sustainable forest management. Forests and trees not only provide wood and non-wood products, but also provide numerous environmental goods and services such as conservation of biological diversity and mitigation of climate change, and they have a key role in alleviating poverty and improving food security. These multiple uses, especially local and gender-specific ones, have in the past been under-represented in forest assessments, and their inclusion will help determine the usefulness of future efforts.
