Moving forward: selected achievements of the FAO forestry programme in 2016–2017

Report

Moving Forward presents highlights of FAO’s work in forestry in 2016 and 2017 to put the Organization’s Strategic Objectives into action. During the period, in addition to extensive activities under the regular programme, the FAO Forestry programme had more than 170 ongoing projects in over 60 countries aimed at achieving transformational impacts that benefit FAO member countries. There is a strong need in forestry for coordinated global responses involving best practices, peer-to-peer learning, capacity development, technology development and transfer, expert analysis and multistakeholder involvement – in short, for the services that FAO and its partners are striving to provide. As the stories in this publication show, FAO is committed to moving forward with its members and partners to achieve a sustainable world.
