State of the World's Forests 1997

The United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization provides this book (Adobe Acrobat [.pdf] format only), which "presents information on the current status of the world's forests, major developments over the reporting period (1995-1997), and recent trends and future directions in the forestry sector." SOFO provides information on global forest cover, including estimates for 1995, change from 1990, and revised estimates for forest cover change from 1980 to 1990, concluding that "the annual loss of natural forests was lower during the 1990-1995 than the 1980-1990 period." Users may download the entire SOFO or any of its parts, including a special section on developing "criteria and indicators for sustainable forest management."
