  • Markku Aho, IFFA, delivering statement on monitoring, assessment and reporting

    This was among the main messages when Markku Aho, IFFA, on behalf of the Farmers and small forest landowners Major Group delivered a statement om Monitoring, assessment and reporting at the 12 session of United Nations Forum on Forests (UNFF 12) in New York 3 May 2017.

    The Farmers and Small Forest Landowners Major Group looks forward to collaborating with government and UN organisations on monitoring, assessment and reporting. A pre-requisite evaluating effects and impacts is that sound information and verifications systems are in place.

    The statement supported the proposed improved format for voluntary reporting by governments. The concept of voluntary national contributions is a constructive and innovative addition to the reporting system.
