About FAO Forestry
Moving forward: selected achievements of the FAO Forestry Programme 2010-2011The FAO Forestry Department helps nations manage their forests in a sustainable way. The Organization's approach balances social, economic and environmental objectives so that present generations can reap the benefits of the earth's forest resources while conserving them to meet the needs of future generations.
FAO Forestry Strategy 2010 - 2013
FAO recognizes that the expectations of its members are changing. Countries encourage FAO to work more effectively to respond to a rapidly changing environment, reach outside the traditional forest sector, engage in partnerships with new stakeholders, and serve as a global leader in international forest affairs.
The role that FAO will play in addressing these challenges is described in FAO Strategy for Forests and Forestry, in particular in the discussion of the “core functions of FAO in forestry” and in the “Organizational Results” to be achieved by FAO in the medium-term. FAO stands ready to make a significant contribution to strengthen country capacities and to overcome the obstacles to sustainable forest management by providing reliable information, policy advice, and technical assistance.
