FORESTS IN THE ECE REGION: TRENDS AND CHALLENGES IN ACHIEVING THE GLOBAL OBJECTIVES ON FORESTS

The study is the contribution of the UNECE Region to the Eleventh Session of the United Nations Forum on Forests. Using the best available data, it examines progress of the forest sector in the UNECE Region towards the achievement of the four Global Objectives on Forests, adopted by the United Nations General Assembly in 2007. On the basis of this assessment as well as the forest sector outlooks and policy commitments by the UNECE member States, thirteen major challenges for the forest sector in the region are identified and analysed. The study provides policy recommendations for consideration in the discussions by the United Nations Forum on Forests.

The study was prepared with the support of Finland, Germany, the Russian Federation, the Swiss Confederation and the United States of America.

The study was presented at the 37th Joint FAO/UNECE Working Party on Forest Statistics, Economics and Management in Geneva in March 2015 and at the 11th Session of the United Nations Forum on Forests in New York in May 2015.
