Online event: Transparency of forest data for climate change mitigation

Why legal and institutional frameworks matter for implementing robust and sustainable National Forest Monitoring Systems (NFMS) will be presented at the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) event.

The FAO elearning Academy webinar highlights the relevance of a legal foundation, financial commitment, and a durable institutional framework to effectively implement an NFMS. Therefore the FAO report "Institutionalizing Forest Data: Establishing legal frameworks for sustainable forest monitoring in REDD+ countries" will be discussed. Experiences and lessons learned on institutionalizing forest data and improving NFMS in Colombia and Uganda will then be presented.

About the event

Forests, and forest monitoring in particular, are critical to meeting emission reduction targets under the Paris Agreement. A robust National Forest Monitoring System (NFMS) can support the formulation, monitoring, and adaptation of sub- and national forest-related policies, inform citizens and stakeholders, and help track progress toward sustainable forest management and emissions reductions related to forest loss.
