People and Forests Forum 2018 themed, ‘A New Landscape of People and Forests,’ will address the intersection between people, forests and the SDGs, including SDG 1 (no poverty), SDG 2 (zero hunger), SDG 15 (life on land) and SDG 16 (peace, justice and strong institutions).
The Forum aims to provide a space for key actors to build awareness, network and explore potential collaborations on community forestry. More specifically, the Forum will, inter alia, showcase evidence of how community forestry has contributed towards achieving the SDGs, and seek to develop innovative ways to further strengthen the connection between community forestry and the SDGs.
The Forum is organized by The Center for People and Forests – RECOFTC, which operates in the Asia-Pacific region.
