Global knowledge reference on sustainable forest management

A recent progress report from FAO's Foresty Department reports on efforts to compile a 'global knowledge reference' on sustainable forest management (SFM). The idea is to create a repository of information on SFM with the aim of enhancing experience-sharing among countries.

"The objective of the knowledge reference on SFM implementation is to provide a standardized interface that displays the wealth of knowledge contained in existing FAO case studies related to SFM, and through this interface enhance knowledge-sharing on forest management between forest managers, researchers and decision makers."

Such a knowledge reference of SFM cases is "essential in order to make older forestry papers, working papers and reports of exemplary forest management cases that have been published by FAO over the last couple of decades as well as more recent publications, much more visible and accessible."
