Final report


WP6: Final report and recommendations on C&I further development and implementation

In this section you will find the CI-SFM final report.

This report is the result of a joint effort, led by the European Forest Institute (EFI), to update the implementation status of the pan-European C&I for SFM with the state-of-the art information, for those interested in using the indicator set - including policy makers, non-governmental and governmental organisations, research and academia, civic society and other relevant stakeholders from inside and outside the forest sector.

The report summarizes the results of the project, carried out under 7 Work Packages. It provides insights into pan-European, national and regional approaches for implementation of criteria and indicators among the FOREST EUROPE signatory countries. The report discusses emerging issues and associated challenges and includes recommendations for improving the pan-European set and its implementation. The methodology used to produce the report was geared towards obtaining as much country participation and expert input as possible.

Please note that other project-related documents were also produced. You can access them here.
