This table provides metadata for the actual indicator available from UK statistics closest to the corresponding global SDG indicator. Please note that even when the global SDG indicator is fully available from UK statistics, this table should be consulted for information on national methodology and other UK-specific metadata information.
|Unit of measurement||
Hectares, Percentage (%), Growth rate (%)
Growth rates (%) are calculated by ((Area certified OR Total woodland Area in year n - Area certified OR Total woodland Area in year n-1) / Area certified OR Total woodland Area in year n-1) * 100
All certified woodland is certified under the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) scheme. Some of these woodlands are also certified under the Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC) scheme. The estimates are based on UK data published by FSC, supplemented by data from individual certificates and other sources. Where possible, figures are for the woodland area certified, rather than the land area certified. Data follows the UN specification for this indicator. This indicator has not been identified in collaboration with topic experts.
