CreatorCOST Action E43
DescriptionThe main objectives of the COST Action E43, which runs from June 2004 to June 2008, are to improve and harmonise the existing national forest resource inventories in Europe, and to support new inventories in such a way that inventories will meet national, European and global level requirements in supplying up-to-date, harmonised and transparent forest resource information for decision (policy) making, and to promote the use of scientifically sound and validated methods in forest inventory designs, data collection and data analysis. The Action is structured into 3 working groups: (1) Harmonised definitions and measuring practices; (2) Harmonised estimation procedures for carbon pools and carbon pool changes; and (3) Harmonised indicators and estimation procedures for assessing components of biodiversity with NFI data. There are 27 signatory countries (European Union and non-EU).
