New appetite for the monitoring of European forests

Key message
Future international forest monitoring should build upon the existing pan-European programs.


There is a renewed interest in the monitoring of European forests. Future monitoring systems should build upon existing international programs, making use of their strengths and solving their weaknesses. This approach will result into win–win solutions for both the existing and future systems. The UNECE ICP Forests has a number of characteristics that makes it a very good and strong basis for developing an advanced international forest monitoring system.
