1948-2018: 70 years

Seventy years of FAO’s
Global Forest Resources Assessment


Seventy years have passed since the publication of the results of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nation’s (FAO’s) first Global Forest Resources Assessment (FRA) in 1948. Since then, FAO has been conducting periodical global assessments of the world’s forest resources.

This publication arose from the desire to share the story of these seven decades of FRA, as a way to mark this important anniversary.

I designed the document for print and web purposes.
