The Expert Consultation on Criteria and Indicators for Sustainable Forest Management (ECCI-2004) was organized by the Forest Management Bureau of the Philippines, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations and the International Tropical Timber Organization and convened in Cebu City, Philippines, from 2 to 4 March 2004. The Forest Management Bureau of the Philippines hosted the meeting. The Expert Consultation brought together 45 technical and policy experts representing 27 countries and seven international organizations involved in the ongoing processes on criteria and indicators for sustainable forest management. It aimed to make recommendations for consideration by countries, C&I processes, UNFF and other international bodies and organizations involved in the work on C&I on the following issues, which served as objectives of the meeting: (1) developing a communication network among processes, countries and other relevant partners to provide a mechanism for exchange of information, building on existing networks; (2) improving common understanding of concepts, terms and definitions related to criteria and indicators; (3) identifying common approaches, methods and protocols for collecting, storing and sharing data; (4) strengthening criteria and indicator processes and inter-process cooperation and sharing of information and know-how; and (5) analyzing the merits of forming an ad hoc international technical advisory group to address technical issues related to the development and implementation of criteria and indicators.
