cused on the dynamics of intensively managed forested landscapes that rely on short rotations and fine temporal and spatial resolutions. Methodology Development Approach, Criteria, and Indicators A landscape approach to forest sustainability requires integration of structure and function at several scales in a multidisciplinary perspective. Communities and tribes who develop sustainable forest management criteria and indicators and track them gain an opportunity to learn about the forest trends, truths and needs to bring a common language across scales, community sectors and landowners to help a mutual understanding for their forest .
Since its origins, the idea of sustainability has always been linked to forest management. However, nowadays, sustainable forest management has usually been approached by defining a set of criteria and indicators. This paper aims to address sustainability in forest management including a set of criteria encompassing the most common decisions: whether the stands are even or uneven-aged, . Based on SFM criteria and indicators, the sustainability of coppices is analysed through two traditional indicators (contribution of the forest sector to GDP and the net revenue of the forest owned) and four innovative indicators (forest sector workforce, trade in wood, energy from wood resources, and accessibility to forest for recreation).
SFM, while indicators at the forest management unit level favour the adjustment of forest management prescriptions, and thus need to be practical, strongly simplified and adapted to specific user groups and purposes (Castañeda , Similä et al. , FAO b). Sustainable management . Author: USDA Forest Service Date: Abstract: The Montréal Process Criteria and Indicators (MP C&I) characterize the essential components of sustainable forest management, and provide a framework for describing the value and condition of forests. These internationally agreed-upon criteria and indicators were developed collaboratively with other member countries as an intergovernmental response.

Criteria and Indicators of Sustainability in Community Managed Forest Landscapes: An Introductory Guide. This Guide introduces criteria and indicators of sustainability for community managed forest landscapes (CMF C&I) as a potential learning and communication tool that can help meet that challenge.
Criteria and indicators of sustainable forest management From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Criteria & Indicators of Sustainable Forest Management (C&I) are policy instruments by which sustainability of forest management in the country/region, or progress towards Sustainable forest management (SFM), may be evaluated and reported on.
Adapting forest management sufficiently quickly and effectively to meet these changes is both urgent and very challenging. This Guide introduces criteria and indicators of sustainability for community managed forest landscapes (CMF C&I) as a potential learning and communication tool that can help meet that challenge.
Criteria and indicators (C&I) are perhaps the most important and innovative forest management tools developed in recent decades. They are not only a mechanism for systematically implementing sustainable forest management (SFM) procedures, but also an effective means of assessing and reporting progress.
The Montréal Process Criteria and Indicators (MP C&I) characterize the essential components of sustainable forest management, and they provide a framework for describing the value and condition of forests.
Criteria and indicators are tools which can be used to conceptualise, evaluate and implement sustainable forest management. Criteria define and characterize the essential elements, as well as a set of conditions or processes, by which sustainable forest management may be assessed.
