Forest COMPASS

Actor Type 
Facilitator

The Forest COMPASS project brings together case studies, resources and analysis on community based forest monitoring on the www.forestcompass.org website. This website supports knowledge sharing and capacity building amongst practitioners and policy-makers, by showcasing who is doing what in this space, and how they are doing it. It also reveals why community collected data is essential for ensuring more efficient, effective and equitable forest initiatives, including international agendas such as the CBDUNFCCC REDD+ and FLEGT.


We aim to continually improve and update information on this website so please contact us with your suggestions and new content. Please get in touch if you would like specific technical support on monitoring.


The Forest COMPASS project is a project of the Global Canopy Programme, this project receives support from Norad.
