Regional assessment reports on forest education

The regional assessment reports on forest education reflect the current status and needs of formal forest education at all levels across the six regions of the United Nations: Africa, Near East and North Africa, Asia Pacific, Europe, Latin America and the Caribbean, and North America.

They represent the findings of the Global Forest Education Survey on Forest Education (undertaken between 15 July-31 October 2020); literature reviews and research undertaken by regional partners; and findings of the project’s regional consultations hosted in early 2021. They reflect the perspectives and experiences of thousands of forest education stakeholders from around the world who generously participated in the survey, and hundreds of key experts who participated in the regional consultations.
