Information Requirements

The principal issue under consideration for LFCCs is the availability of forest- derived goods and services per person, nationally and in global terms. The information on the scarcity of such goods and services is needs at the global level and its availability at the national and local levels is important as a basis for decision - making. For that purpose, the strengthening of the information systems, as well as the creation of new systems. Where necessary, must be assisted and supported. National monitoring programmes are increasingly being implemented in LFCCs to improve the accuracy of data and the requirements for policy making and other information purposes.

In many cases, new information is needs for developing that are appropriate to the management of scarce forest resources, analyzing the marketers for forest goods and services, determining institutional responsibilities and roles, and planning forest management.
