Resources

Welcome to the resources section - an extensive, searchable library of information on community-based forest monitoring. We have a range of resources, from policy briefs to videos and how-to guides, which can support policy makers, practitioners and researchers.

Resources are tagged by 'type' (e.g. journal article or manual) and 'monitoring theme' (e.g. biodiversity) to help you search for what you need. Examples of project reports and technical project materials can help with key steps, such as creating a mobile data collection form using Open Data Kit, establishing free prior and informed consent, and building a participatory monitoring framework. Policy briefs and 'lessons learned' reports can help you make the case for community-based monitoring, by showing the value it has had for forest communities around the world.

Our case studies, blogs, and pages on why to do community-based forest monitoring and on digital technology are separate from this resource library, so do take a look at them too.

If you have a resource related to community-based forest monitoring that you would like us to upload to Forest COMPASS, please get in touch.
