GFOI Communications Workshop (10-12 July 2019)

Rome, FAO headquarters
10 July 2019 - 12 July 2019

Communication is key to developing strong and productive working relationships among partners in the forest monitoring sector. Therefore communications is a key pillar for the Global Forest Observations Initiative (GFOI), which seeks to coordinate the delivery of international support in forest monitoring to help address developing country needs.

Representatives from partner organizations will meet to discuss GFOI communications during a workshop held at FAO headquarters in Rome from 10 to 12 July 2019. The goal is to develop a communication strategy for GFOI Phase II and a plan for the next biennium, following a discussion on the needs and opportunities for partner organizations. The discussions will increase ownership and strength of the strategy across GFOI partners, as participants will have the opportunity to shape the strategy.

The workshop is organized by the GFOI Office and is by invitation only. The GFOI Office is hosted by the FAO’s Forestry Department and works as a Secretariat supporting the entire Initiative. For more, information please contact:
