The GFOI Review is now complete and the findings have been released. The review has found that the GFOI has been largely successful in pursuing its initial goals. However, it recommends that GFOI now needs to chart a course for the future that is consistent with the changing global context; including the Paris Agreement and other significant developments since the Initiative was first established. A second phase of GFOI will now be pursued and focused on a primary goal of coordinated capacity building assistance in forest monitoring for the benefit of developing countries globally. The final report from the review and the response from the GFOI Leads Group are now available below.
