Ecuador : Indicators

2012 > 20 Key Indicators 2012 > Reports from Independent Forest Monitoring

Although the country does not currently have an independent forest monitor, the model of forest governance being implemented by the Ministry of Environment (MAE) recognises assessment and monitoring of forest management as a key element in the implementation of effective forest governance.

In addition, the MAE published terms of reference for contracting a consultancy firm to implement a System of Independent Verification of Legal Origin and Forest Management Compliance in order to improve the transparency of the forest sector; this is a step forward in management. Civil society will need to track the contracting process and the implementation of this system (http://www.ambiente.gob.ec/wp-content/uploads/downloads/2012/09/TDR_gestionforestal.pdf).
