The biennial sessions of COFO bring together heads of forest services and other senior government officials to identify emerging policy and technical issues, to seek solutions, and to advise the FAO and others on appropriate action. The 26th Session of the FAO Committee on Forestry (COFO 26) will focus on the contributions of forests to the SDGs.
COFO 26 will examine FAO’s flagship report, ‘The State of the World’s Forests 2022,’ the outcomes of the XV World Forestry Congress, and FAO’s Strategic Framework 2022-2031.
The 8th World Forest Week – a series of meetings and events hosted by FAO and its partner organizations and institutions will provide participants with an opportunity to exchange, connect, and find responses for the forest sector to the issues discussed in COFO 26.
COFO 26 will convene from 3-7 October, while the 8th World Forest Week will take place on from 29 September to 7 October.
