Aprovechando este potencial, un creciente número de iniciativas nacionales e internacionales han definido conjuntos de C y I para la certificación, el monitoreo y la auditoría del manejo forestal.

Thus an increasing number of national and international initiatives defined C&I sets for certification, monitoring and auditing of forest management. Because of the variety of C and I applications and the heterogeneity of C and I users, the demands and requirements on C and I in relation to application, evaluation and interpretation are diverse. Based on a revision of C and I initiatives in Latin America, experiences made by the Center for International Forestry Research (CIFOR) and consultations with experts, the paper identifies and discusses the demands and requirements related to the application of C and I and its practical implications.

Because of the variety of C and I applications and the heterogeneity of C and I users, the demands and requirements on C and I in relation to application, evaluation and interpretation are diverse. To ensure viability and acceptance of C and I based forest management tools, this diversity has to be considered in the process of developing C and I sets.
