Regional Technical Workshop Minding the gap: Scaling biomass allometric equations for National Forest Inventories in South and Central America

The objective of the workshop was to identify the gaps and needs in South and Central America on the use of tree allometric equations to support national forest monitoring systems and particularly provide knowledge on how to apply the three scenarios proposed to concrete national case studies. Specifically, we sought to:
-Update on the status of progress of activities on tree allometric equations globally and in Latin America
-Overview of the linkage between tree equation development, national and local forest inventories
-Improve collaboration and knowledge through networking and knowledge exchange in Latin America
-Highlight forestry research activities to support national forest monitoring systems
-Propose recommendations on national forest biomass assessment at national and local levels
This document also contains a summary of the workshop’s presentations.
