Sustainably managed forests provide essential goods and services and thus play a vital part in sustainable development. Reliable and up-to-date information on the state of forest resources is crucial to support decision-making for investment and policymaking in forestry and sustainable development. FAO, at the request of its member countries, regularly monitors the world ́s forests and their management and uses through the Global Forest Resources Assessment. More information on the FRA 2015 process, other publications and online database is available on the FRA web site (www.fao.org/forestry/fra).
