Promoting Green Jobs in the Forest Sector

27 - 28 June 2017

Slovak Republic, Bratislava

Forest Europe and the UNECE/FAO Forestry and Timber Section will organize a joint workshop under the auspices of the Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development of the Slovak Republic from 27—28 June 2017 in Bratislava, Slovakia. 

The forest sector has a great potential to generate jobs and income, support livelihoods and contribute to rural development by suppling goods and maintaining forest ecosystem services. The forest sector is expected to play an important role in the emerging green economy in the pan-European region. The transition to a greener economy offers opportunities for economic prosperity, environmental protection and social inclusion, and can contribute to the implementation of the UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
