Committee on Forestry
The Committee on Forestry (COFO) is the highest FAO Forestry statutory body. The biennial sessions of COFO (held at FAO headquarters in Rome, Italy) bring together heads of forest services and other senior government officials to identify emerging policy and technical issues, to seek solutions and to advise FAO and others on appropriate action. Other international organizations and, increasingly, non-governmental groups participate in COFO. Participation in COFO is open to all FAO member countries.
Membership in the FAO Committee on Forestry (COFO) is open to all FAO Member Nations which, each biennium, inform the Director-General of their desire to become a member and of their intention to participate in the work of the Committee. Member countries of FAO which have not yet submitted their COFO Membership Notification form are encouraged to do so. Click here to access the form.
