  2. 2. Open Foris initiative Free and open source tools and methods for data collection, analysis and reporting  Collaboration - private and public partners; academic institutions.  Country testing - OF tools have been promoted in many countries, including those receiving support under the UNREDD programme, REDD+/NFM cluster and Global Forest Resources Assessment (FRA).  Capacity building - training sessions on all OF tools in all regions of the world.  Implementation - more than 20 countries have integrated OF tools in their forest monitoring systems.  Software development - new and improved versions of the tools are released periodically. KEY Principles

  12. 12. 13 Future development: Open Foris Online FAO Forestry (under UN-REDD global project) has started developing Open Foris Online system (2018 – 2020). Current OF tools are integrated and streamlined, and made available to countries in a secure cloud-based environment. This project will focus on requirements set for Forest Reference (Emission) Level reporting, REDD+ results, and the National Forest Monitoring Systems (NFMS).
