The Forest Resources Assessment Programme 

 

Forests are crucial for the well-being of humanity. They provide foundations for life on earth through 



ecological functions, by regulating the climate and water resources and by serving as habitats for plants 

and animals. Forests also furnish a wide range of essential goods such as wood, food, fodder and 

medicines, in addition to opportunities for recreation, spiritual renewal and other services. 

 

Today, forests are under pressure from increasing demands of land-based products and services, which 



frequently lead to the conversion or degradation of forests into unsustainable forms of land use. When 

forests are lost or severely degraded, their capacity to function as regulators of the environment is also 

lost, increasing flood and erosion hazards, reducing soil fertility and contributing to the loss of plant and 

animal life. As a result, the sustainable provision of goods and services from forests is jeopardized.  

 

FAO, at the request of the member nations and the world community, regularly monitors the world’s 



forests through the Forest Resources Assessment Programme. The Global Forest Resources 

Assessment 2000 (FRA 2000) reviewed the situation of the world’s forest by the end of the millennium 

and the main report is available on the World Wide Web (

www.fao.org/forestry/fra

).   

 

Currently, FAO is preparing the Global Forest Resources Assessment 2005 (FRA 2005) which will be 



published in 2005. The reporting framework will be based on the thematic elements of sustainable forest 

management derived from the nine regional criteria and indicator processes.  

 

The Forest Resources Assessment Programme is organized under the Forest Resources Division at FAO 



headquarters in Rome. The contact person for matters related to FRA 2005 is: 

 

Mette Løyche Wilkie, Senior Forestry Officer (FRA)
