A Guide to Independent Forest Monitoring (IFM)

The definitive guide to Independent Forest Monitoring (IFM) for governments, donors, and NGOs. IFM represents a unique approach to assessing and strengthening legal compliance in the forest sector. By complementing official forest law enforcement with the objectivity and public credibility of an independent third party, IFM can improve transparency in the short term while contributing to the development of a sound legislative and regulatory framework for responsible forest management.
