Description

Forests and trees can play a crucial role in addressing planetary challenges such as climate change and biodiversity loss while moving towards sustainable economies and increasing food security.

The State of the World’s Forests 2022 (SOFO2022) provides three pathways to implement this new perspective of making development work with the environment: ‘protect’: measures for halting deforestation; ‘restore’: making land more productive, and ‘use’: investments in building economically viable green value chains that provide resilient livelihoods. SOFO2022 is a contribution to the implementation of Sustainable Development Goals and in particular SDG 15 (Life on Land) and the United Nations Strategic Plan for Forests and its Global Forest Goals.

Important commitments regarding the world’s forests have been made at the United Nations Food Systems Summit (UNFSS), the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change Conference of the Parties (UNFCCC COP26), the United Nations Environment Assembly 5.2 (UNEA 5.2), the United Nations Forum on Forests (UNFF17), and the Seoul Forest Declaration and the Ministerial Call on Sustainable Wood adopted at World Forestry Congress (WFC) 2022.

Join FAO and Members of the Collaborative Partnership on Forests in this discussion on interfaces between protection, restoration and sustainable use of forests as building blocks for a green recovery. Together they can conserve nature, better provide for human well-being, and contribute to inclusive recovery, build resilient and sustainable economies.
