ClientEarth response to the public consultation on the new EU Framework for Forest Monitoring and Strategic Plans

This is ClientEarth’s response to the public consultation held by the European Commission regarding the future EU Framework for Forest Monitoring and Strategic Plans.

This position paper seeks to bring to the attention of the Commission three issues that will be key to unlock the potential of this new framework:

  • access to information, public participation and access to justice;
  • the accessibility of forest data, in particular remote sensing data and its effective use; and
  • the role of forest-related data in the implementation of EU legislation on nature conversion and restoration and on illegal logging and deforestation.

ClientEarth’s feedback to the Commission is based on both our own experience and knowledge as well as on a survey conducted by ClientEarth in 2021, in which we asked over 50 environmental scientists and organisations about their experiences and needs in relation to forest information.
