When looking into the forest area and cover, it is essential to consider that the term ‘forest’ may have very different meanings depending on the context. As a result, different data sources may use different forest definitions or even concepts, typically linked to the assessment methods and criteria agreed in various international frameworks. Great care should thus be taken when using, comparing, or combining forest area and forest cover estimates. Read the “What is considered as a forest” for more insights.
