Good forest governance is vital for the sustainable management of forests and land, and as such, is fundamental for the development and implementation of effective and equitable solutions to climate change.
This year’s event provides a platform for a diversity of stakeholders, from government, industry and civil society, to help maintain political momentum behind the COP26 commitments on forests and to consider potential alignment with the CBD agenda. The event will also provide an opportunity to share new ideas, research and developments in the sector aimed at strengthening forest and land-use governance.
Over the two days, discussions will be convened linked by two overarching themes: the role of responsible business and trade in supporting a legal and sustainable forest sector; development models to support transitions to sustainable forest economies.
The conference will be a hybrid event, with both in-person attendance at Chatham House, London, and online participation. Six sessions will be held over the two days.
Simultaneous interpretation will be provided between English, French, Indonesian and Portuguese and additional languages may be provided depending on requirements.
