Improving the Forests Database to Support Sustainable Forest Management (Scoping Study Final Report)
This report points out that improving data quality would give a better understanding of the value of forest wealth, its share in total wealth, and how that value is changing over time, allowing countries and data users to be better equipped with credible and more accurate information on the physical area and value of forest resources. Countries should consider not just the flow of revenues from forest resources, but also the sustainable management of the asset (stock of forest resources).
