Did you know that forests cover nearly 1/3 of land globally?

That’s 4.06 billion hectares.

In other words, there is around 0.52 ha of forest for every person on the planet.

This interactive report contains the main findings of the Global Forest Resources Assessment 2020 (FRA 2020).

FRA 2020 examines the status of, and trends in, more than 60 forest-related variables in 236 countries and territories in the period 1990–2020.

The information provided by FRA presents a comprehensive view of the world’s forests and the ways in which the resource is changing. Such a clear global picture supports the development of sound policies, practices and investments affecting forests and forestry.
