Cooperation

Cooperation on forestry statistics is long-standing.  It is designed to lighten the burden for reporting countries and to assist international organizations in producing consistent data.

In forest products information the Intersecretariat Working Group on Forest Sector Statistics coordinates the Joint Forest Sector Questionnaire amongst the 4 participating organizations: ECE/FAO, Eurostat, ITTO and FAO.  Each of the organizations is responsible for circulating the questionnaire to those countries for which it is responsible.  Results of the questionnaire are provided to the partner organizations as needed. Each organization publishes these results according to its mandate and needs.  We are grateful to our partners for their dedication and cooperation in producing the best forest products statistics possible.

Forest products information for countries not available here can be found at FAO.
