DescriptionThe Global Forest Resources Assessment 2005 (FRA 2005) is a comprehensive assessment of forests and forestry. It examines the current status and recent trends for about 40 variables covering the extent, condition, uses and values of forests and other wooded land, with the aim of assessing all benefits from forest resources. The results are presented according to six thematic elements of sustainable forest management (extent of forest resources; forest health; biological diversity; productive functions of forest resources; protective functions of forest resources; socio-economic functions of forest resources). The information is presented for 229 countries and territories for three points in time: 1990, 2000 and 2005. The web site presents the key findings; global tables for 18 variables; country tables for 15 variables; and background documents and other information about the assessment process including links to previous assessments.
