The side event “Forests, Trees and Poverty Alleviation in Africa” will take place during the High-level Political Forum on Sustainable Development 2021 and will feature the launch of the International Union of Forest Research Organizations (IUFRO)’s Global Forest Expert Panels (GFEP) Programme policy brief entitled “Expanded Policy Brief for African Stakeholders on Forests, Trees and Poverty Alleviation in Africa.”
