  • Abstract

    This document summarizes the design process, definitions, and algorithmic implementation conducted by the Joint Research Centre to support the development and implementation of FAO’s global forest analysis for the thematic topics Accounting and Fragmentation. The analysis scheme and data products were designed to support the indicator Forest Fragmentation in the State of the World's Forests (SOFO) report 2020. The spatial forest coverage is assessed from the Copernicus Global Land Cover 2015 dataset (accessed in July 2019) and 21 Global Ecological Zones (GEZ). All data was re-projected to equal area to allow for comparable area estimates across the Globe. Spatially explicit maps and statistical summaries are derived at global level and for each of the 21 GEZ.
