This paper two national programs aimed at generating new data: the new plot-based National Forest Inventory (NFI) and the satellite-based program on Earth Observation for Sustainable Development of Forests (EOSD). A third national program, the development of the National Forest Carbon Accounting Framework, uses these (and other) data to provide information on carbon stocks in Canada’s forests. We briefly summarize each program and describe their integration.
