    Description

    A primary objective of the Italian National Forest Inventory (NFI) is to provide information required by the Kyoto Protocol and the Ministerial Conference on the Protection of Forests in Europe in relation to sustainable forest management practices. For this reason, the second Italian NFI was aimed at providing data in a way that is consistent with the international standards, such as the adopted definition of forest area. Particular attention was paid to the quality of the data collected to obtain good accuracy and high precision at the national level. This has been achieved with a three-phase sampling for stratification that allowed for a high sampling intensity in the first two phases and careful control of the data inputs with continuous feedback from the surveyors.
