1 A FOREST LANDS INFORMATION SYSTEM IN SUPPORT OF SUSTAINABLE MANAGEMENT AND USE OF FORESTS National Cadastre & Mapping Agency () Ministry of Environment 288 Mesogion Ave. Cholargos (Athens) Greece

2 Introduction Spatial data and information about forestlands are among the most critical in the context of: Forest and environmental protection Spatial planning Monitoring Forest governance From the Land Administration perspective, it becomes more crucial in determining their definitive boundaries and their associated property rights (tenure) for their sustainable use and development. 2

3 Sustainable Management and Use of Forests The notion of sustainable management has a very long tradition in Forestry. The first ever written statement about the effects of unsustainable practices regarding forests, referred to the deforestation of the hills around Athens, as a result of logging for shipbuilding and clearcut for agricultural use (Plato, 5 th Century B.C.). The very term 'sustainable' was first used to refer to the sustainable yield of forest resources: forest resources should be used with caution to achieve continuity between increment and felling (Von Carlowitz, 18 th Century A.D.). 3

4 Sustainable Forest Management and Sustainable Development Sustainable forest management (SFM) refers to the stewardship and use of forests and forest lands in a way, and at a rate, that maintains their biodiversity, productivity, regeneration capacity, vitality and their potential to fulfil, now and in the future, relevant ecological, economic and social functions, at local, national and global levels; and that does not cause damage to other ecosystems (FAO, 2013). Sustainable development has a widen meaning and refers to economic, social and environmental development. 4

5 Forestlands Information Systems (FIS) and Land Administration Systems (LAS) FIS refers to the process of recording geospatial data, disseminating and reporting spatial information about forestlands, their associated resources and management activities as well, for their sustainable management. These activities, are associated with national or international commitments made by each country. LA refers to the process of recording and disseminating information about ownership, value and use of land and its associated resources. LA includes, inter alias, cadastre, land registers, land consolidation, valuation, spatial information management for a sustainable management of land resource (Economic Commission for Europe, 1996). 5

6 Forest Lands Administration & SFM Based on work of Williamson et al.,

7 National Efforts towards Forestlands Definitive Delineation 7

8 Background Forestland mapping, along with ownership, known as forest cadastre, is an unaccomplished task for forestry in Greece. The First National Forest Inventory completed in 1985 but not continued ever since. The Forest Cadastre program started in 1976, lead to cadastral maps development for a small area of 320,212 Ha across Greece. The National Cadastre program started in 1997 and is still under development. The Forest Map program started in 1998 and is still under development. 8

9 Background Main reasons for the delay: Lack of institutional capacity over the last century (technology, ICT). Lack of a National Spatial Data Infrastructure (NSDI) (sparse spatial data, duplication, use of multiple geodetic references, no central deposit). Lack of Cadastre System (instead, a registry system of deeds with no spatial reference). Old-fashioned attitudes (act as a barrier towards modernization). Inadequate policies (limited to short term expectations), and above all Lack of Administration will! 9

10 Background Thus, Greece lacks a FIS which eventually lead the Administration to favor the circumstantial confirmation of whether certain parcels or areas are forestlands or not! A practice that deprives environment of protection regarding forestlands. Even worse, it has been expanded to all aspects of state lands administration (e.g. urban/non urban, consolidated land or not, etc.) and eventually compromises the principles of sustainable development. 10

15 Why we need a National Forestlands Information System? Strategic goals for building a National FIS: Establish the conditions for transparency in forestlands administration, Assist in better decision and policy making, Develop geospatial infrastructure for assessment and monitoring of forestlands and their resources (2 nd level of further development), and Support sustainable forest management and overall sustainable development. 15

16 Why we need a National Forestlands Information System? Operational goals: present an accurate picture of forestlands geographic location and their boundaries, make relevant, reliable, accurate, and up-to-date spatial forest data and information continuously available to the government, land authorities, business and community as well, provide consistency in reporting, reduce costs through the sharing of information technology, facilitate citizens, professionals, research, and build the land market. 16

17 Towards FIS Development (The Forest Map) Authoritative data is the foundation of any FIS! Explicit geospatial data and information with institutional and legal enforcement and power, across jurisdictional boundaries. 17

18 The Forest Map the leading Greek government company, responsible for the development and operation of national cadastre in Greece, has launched an ambitious program to develop final Forest Maps at the national scale till Cadastre development comprises of all land properties, and therefore cadastral forest mapping is necessary for a successful cadastre establishment. The Forest Map aims to: 1. Assessment and environmental protection of forestlands and 2. Identify and promote state property rights on forestlands through cadastral process. 18

19 The Forest Map Cadastral forest mapping deals with forestlands boundary delineation and their associated characterization (forest/nonforest) based on the landcover characteristics from multi-temporal aerial remotely sensed data and fieldwork. In addition, it takes in account a plethora of existing data, such as administrative deeds issued by local Forest Districts, historical cadastral or land distribution diagrams, court decisions, urban boundaries, etc. to document the legal status of land (forest/nonforest). The Forest Maps are authorized by the State, following a transparent procedure including wide publication of their content via internet, public participation through objections submission, which are examined by independent committees. 19

22 Building the National FIS has taken major steps into setting up a technological infrastructure that supports effectively: The development of a Cadastre and Forest Maps, The operation of Cadastre through the establishment of Cadastral Offices across Greece. Web-enabled services to community. The cornerstone of FIS development is the large scale (1:5.000) nationwide digital orthoimagery and the final authorized Forest Maps. 22

34 Concluding Remarks The FIS is a indispensable component of a modern land administration system. Authoritative land spatial data & information is the key element for FIS development. The implementation of the proposed FIS will improve a) administration of state lands and the quality of land information, b) provide secure and update forest land data & information, and c) provide access and legal security. and thus: promote sustainable management and use of forestlands. 34
