Legal assessment to set up and operationalize a national forest monitoring system


Sustainable forest management requires legally binding arrangements combined with financial resources for staff and data collection, supported with sound structures to enforce legal measures beyond the duration of a single political cycle. In this regard, forest-related institutions with clear mandates can facilitate the task of ensuring the sustainability of a National Forest Monitoring System (NFMS), increase transparency in forest data, access to financial resources, including REDD+ results-based payments, and adequately inform decision-making processes to reduce deforestation and degradation.
