Net forest emissions ( BBB )

This indicator is proposed as an indicator for Sustainable Development Target 15.2 By 2020, promote the implementation of sustainable management of all types of forests, halt deforestation, restore degraded forests and substantially increase afforestation and reforestation globally.



FAO carries out global forest resources assessments at 5 year intervals. The indicator is aggregated to the national scale.

The national figures in the global assessments are reported by countries following a standardized format, definitions and reporting years to provide a means of comparability across countries.
