International Symposium on Indicators to Assess and Monitor the Quality of Forest Governance
The World Bank, PROFOR and FAO are organizing an international symposium on indicators to assess and monitor the quality of forest governance. The symposium will take stock of progress to date in designing indicators and applying them in the field, including the use of indicators for specific purposes.
Areas of application include investment risk analysis, targeting and monitoring of forest reforms, tracking success of anti-corruption initiatives and law enforcement, evaluating poverty alleviation efforts, encouraging sustainable forest management, safeguarding human rights, and improving conflict
management. There is special interest in the use of indicators in monitoring FLEGT outcomes (including VPAs), implementing REDD+ and FIP activities.
