dc.titleMonitoring the impact of certificationen
dcterms.abstractIn spite of extensive sustainability indicators, there is a lack of quantitative evidence of the positive impact of certification on forest biodiversity. The widespread use of conventional monitoring approaches have thus far not provided conclusive information about the effects of forest certification schemes such as that of the Forest Certification Council (FSC). One of the reasons for this is thought to be the high costs of conventional monitoring (and consequently the relatively small sample sizes), which does not permit representative sampling (van der Hoeven et al. 2000; van Kuijk, Putz and Zagt 2009).en

is.evaluation.notesShort opinion piece on measuring impact of certification on biodiversity in forests. Main point: include participatory approaches to conventional methods in order to create better and cheaper monitoring methods to be used in forest certification.
is.evaluation.quotes"The use of participatory monitoring methods in sustainable forest management certification schemes should be further promoted and should complement and eventually replace conventional methods."
is.evaluation.quotes"We believe that the use of participative monitoring methods in sustainable forest management certification schemes should be further promoted and should complement conventional methods. We also believe, however, that conventional methods cannot be abolished altogether, but should be merged with participatory monitoring to provide calibration and back-up. Little research has been done on the effectiveness of combining conventional and participative methods. A major research effort should result in applicable protocols for forest managers."
