DescriptionThe 2015 Global Forest Resources Assessment (FRA2015) continues the tradition of seeking to describe the world’s forests – a tradition that began in 1948. FRA2015 development began in June 2011 as the FRA Advisory Group discussed the FRA Long-Term Strategy and the implications for FRA 2015. The design process has involved users, national correspondents and experts from a wide variety of technical backgrounds. Countries representing some 75% of the world’s forest area contributed to constructing FRA 2015 content. Ultimately data are reported for 234 countries and territories, of which 155 reports come from countries themselves - countries that contain 98.8% of the world’s forests. The remaining 79 countries and territories (covering only 1.2% of the world's forest) were reported as desk studies prepared by FAO. FRA2015 contains some 120 variables covering the period 1990-2015.
