The IFRI network is in the process of developing a data-sharing policy that will set the conditions whereby IFRI data will be made available for public use. As soon as a responsible policy has been developed, it will be posted to this page. For more information about this policy or about using IFRI data, please email email@example.com.
Below is a table that depicts how many countries, communities, and forest plots that IFRI has visited, in order to show how wide and deep IFRI’s impact is across the globe.
|Country||Number of Forests||Number of Plots||Number of Settlements||Number of Associations||Number of Usergroups|
