National Forest Inventory Committee

The National Forest Inventory Committee was created in the REDD + framework through a letter of understanding between SINAC and Fonafifo in order to guide the design, implementation and analysis of forestry information for REDD + and, in general, to evaluate the forest resources. This inventory is funded by the REDD / CCAD / GiZ program and represents the first nationally representative forest inventory in Costa Rica
