FSC’s Journey Towards Impactful Standards

After operating for over 25 years, does FSC really know the impact of our work and standards?  

Our FSC Monitoring and Evaluation Framework aims to address that by leveraging data to demonstrate the impact of our work and standards and to showcase how we adapt and evolve based on key learnings. We will draw particular attention to our plans to integrate the outcome-orientation concept (related to Motion 58/2021) to make FSC standards more impactful. 

Join this side session to discover the scope and objectives of this framework and share your insights on both opportunities and challenges on monitoring and evaluation at FSC.
