Introduction
I’m a recognised expert on indicators for sustainable forest management, biodiversity & bioeconomy. I have compiled data and related assessments, provided input and indicator expertise to national & international organisations and focused in EO projects on forest related data needs which could not be fulfilled via in situ measurements. In 2014 I launched the IUFRO WP 9.01.05 on Research and Development of Indicators for SFM. My present focus of work is on various headline indicator sets.

Project
This capacity building project is funded by the United Nations Development Account (UNDA). The timeframe of the project is 2016-2020 The objective of this project is to strengthen the national capacity of five target countries (Armenia, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan) to develop national criteria and indicators (C&I) and reporting, or accountability systems, for sustainable forest management (SFM). The project is expected to enable the target countries to actively participate in international processes related to forests, and contribute to the sustainable development of the sector towards a green economy. National criteria and indicators for SFM will serve as a tool to communicate the relevance of forests as they relate to the environment as well as socioeconomic situation at national, regional and international levels.
