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.

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.
