The 76th session of the UN Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) Committee on Forests and the Forest Industry (COFFI) will review and guide activities in data collection and analysis, policy support, capacity building and communication. Convening under the title, ‘Building the Future with Forests,’ the meeting will focus on the transition towards a more sustainable society and a circular economy, based on the provision of forest products from sustainably managed forests.
In order to find tangible solution to these issues, the meeting will bring together experts, policy makers, business leaders as well as national delegates through a variety of panel discussions concentrating primarily on the challenges and opportunities for timber and forest product markets, as well as forests and circular economy.
