The Sixth Session of the Intergovernmental Technical Working Group on Forest Genetic Resources will take place as a virtual meeting and will be conducted in Arabic, Chinese, English, French, Russian and Spanish. The documents of the Session may be downloaded, as they become available, from the Working Group’s website.   

The Session was originally scheduled for May 2020 but was postponed because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

In February 2019, the Commission on Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture decided that the Working Group should meet prior to the next Regular Session of the Commission to review progress in implementing the Global Plan of Action for the Conservation, Sustainable Use and Development of Forest Genetic Resources and in preparing The Second Report on the State of the World’s Forest Genetic Resources. The Commission also requested the Working Group to explore cross-sectoral issues, such as access and benefit-sharing, “digital sequence information”, the role of genetic resources in mitigating of and adaptation to climate change and biotechnologies, as they are relevant to the forestry subsector, as well as review options for the Commission’s future intersessional work.
