Founded 1994, Geneva (Switzerland). Feb 1995, agreed the Santiago Declaration which set out scope and key definitions covering 7 criteria and 67 associated indicators as guidelines for policy-makers to use in assessing national forest trends and progress toward sustainable forest management in temperate and boreal forests. By 2003, the Montreal Process member countries had published their first Country Forest Reports using the agreed MP criteria and indicators. The illustrative trends of these where consolidated into the First Forest Overview Report 2003. The Working Group approved a revised set of indicators and the member countries used the improved indicators to prepare their second round of Country Forest Reports in 2009. In agreeing to the updated set of indicators, the Working Group underscored the relevance of Criteria and Indicators to decision making within their countries and international comparability.
