SFA side event at XIV World Forestry Congress in Durban, 7 September

04 September 2015

The future of forests largely depends on how other sectors, in particular agriculture, interact with them. To ensure its sustainability, forestry has no other option than finding ways to successfully and synergistically managing these interactions. 

The event will aim at discussing the opportunities that SFA offers to enhance forest sustainability through better work across sectors. It will present FAO’s common vision as well as preliminary conclusions from country implementation. It will benefit from the participation of FAO keynote speakers, as well as high-level government officials from partner countries who will share their experiences on cross-sectoral approaches to forest management. 

Title: FAO’s common vision for Sustainable Food and Agriculture - Enhancing Forests’ Sustainability through Improved Cross-Sectoral Governance Mechanisms
