Description

The "Forest Proximate People" (FPP) dataset is one of the data layers contributing to the development of indicator #13, "number of forest-dependent people in extreme poverty," of the Collaborative Partnership on Forests (CPF) Global Core Set of forest-related indicators (GCS). The FPP dataset provides an estimate of the number of people living in or within 1 kilometer of forests (forest-proximate people) for the year 2019 with a pixel size of 100 meters at a global level. Find out more about the dataset.
