5 December 2008: The Collaborative Partnership on Forests (CPF) launched a Strategic Framework for Forests and Climate Change during a side event held during the 14th session of the Conference of the Parties to the UNFCCC, taking place in Poznan, Poland.

CPF
members have been working on the Framework since April 2008. It proposes a
coordinated forest-sector response to the global climate change agenda and puts
forward a case for a tactical role of sustainable forest management (SFM) in
achieving long-term climate change mitigation and providing a robust framework
for effective adaptation. It also emphasizes urgent action for adaptation and
more focus on combating forest degradation through SFM, including forest
conservation, rehabilitation and restoration.
The CPF is an
interagency mechanism of 14 international organizations and secretariats
dealing with forest issues. It was established in response to an invitation by the
UN Economic and Social Council. CPF supports the work of the UN Forum on
Forests and the Rio Conventions, and seeks to enhance collaboration and
coordination on forest issues. [CPF website on forests
