National Forest Inventory Project (Cambodia)

Initiative

Summary

The National Forest Inventory Project (NFI) is designed to provide technical support and information to the Royal Government of Cambodia (RGC), and other forest sector stakeholders, for the development of the policies and measures necessary for the NFI and to develop the necessary factors for reporting on Cambodia’s future national REDD+ programme. The NFI will help the RGC to get an accurate assessment of the extent of national forest cover and will assist towards the implementation of the National Forest Policy (NFP). It will also contribute towards establishing a national greenhouse gas inventory. The NFI is based on an agreement between the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries (MAFF) and the UN-REDD programme, and will be implemented by the Technical Cooperation Programme of the FAO.
