DescriptionThe 2010 edition (published 2011) of the report Indicators for the Sustainable Forest Management in metropolitan France presents a total of 54 indicators grouped according to six criteria: Maintenance and appropriate enhancement of forest resources and their contribution to global carbon cycles; Maintenance of forest ecosystem health and vitality; Maintenance and encouragement of productive functions of forests (wood and non-wood); Maintenance, conservation and appropriate enhancement of biological diversity in forest ecosystems; Maintenance and appropriate enhancement of protective functions in forest management (notably soil and water); Maintenance of other socioeconomic functions and conditions. The report presents the results of the latest round of the French National Forest Inventory. In 2005, France modified the implementation method of its inventory, and adopted the international definition of forest. Therefore the results of the new inventory presented in the 2010 edition, should be viewed as a new baseline for the indicators.
