DescriptionIn May 2008, the Finnish Forest Research Institute; the Montréal Process; the International Institute of Tropical Forestry; the Forestry Department of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations; the Finnish Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry; and the Forest Service, U.S. Department of Agriculture, sponsored a workshop to address the current status of forest status reporting by countries. More specifically, the workshop examined the use by decisionmakers and citizens of forest reports that have used criteria and indicators (C&I) to document current biological, social, and economic trends relevant to the sustainable management of a country's forests. In many cases, expectations for these reports have not been met. Discussion was devoted to how such reports could be improved based on current decisionmaker and citizen use of the reports.
