Greening our cities
22 June 2006, Rome – Urban areas, home to more than half the world’s poor, are projected to account for nearly all population growth over the next 25 years, with 9 out of every 10 births occurring in cities. According to FAO, urban forestry initiatives can help offset the environmental, economic and health risks posed by rapid urbanization and poverty.

The Advisory Committee on Paper and Wood Products (ACPWP) and the International Council of Forest Products Associations met during the first week of June in Rome, followed by a meeting of CEOs of the member forest industry and pulp and paper companies. Fifty-four CEOs from around the world signed a commitment to global sustainability as an indication of their commitment to sustainable development.
