A Powerful New Addition to the Decision-Making Toolbox
The Forest and Ecosystem Management System (FEMS) supports forest management decisions that advance the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). While some management decisions can promote multiple SDGs at once, others at times present tradeoffs in pursuing sustainability targets and solutions that improve one SDG to the detriment of another. FEMS addresses this challenge by visualizing the impacts management decisions can have on different SDGs. FEMS is easily accessible for forest managers and decision makers working at all scales, and a valuable tool that adds more transparency to sustainable forest management.
