Collaborative Partnership on Forests

The Collaborative Partnership on Forests (CPF) is an innovative, voluntary inter-agency partnership of 15 international organizations, institutions and secretariats with substantial programmes on forests.  

The vision of the CPF is that "by 2030 all types of forests and forest landscapes are sustainably managed, their multiple values are fully recognized, the potential of forests and their goods and services is fully unlocked, and the Global Forest Goals, the Sustainable Development Goals and other global forest-related goals, targets and commitments are achieved." To support countries achieve these aims, CPF members work together on forest issues to help move from deforestation to restoration.
