Building back a better post-COVID-19 world with sustainable forest products

Following the impact of COVID 19 on the forest sector, the Advisory Committee on Sustainable Forest-based Industries (ACSFI) and its members call upon FAO, the private sector and other stakeholders to jointly strengthen their engagement on a statement.

In the statement, the ACSFI advises those developing strategies to build back better after the COVID-19 crisis that sustainable forest-based industries provide a range of benefits. These include forest products, sustainable livelihoods, green jobs, support to sustainable food systems through the production of wood energy and long-term management of forest resources, as well as tangible contributions to the Sustainable Development Goals and the Global Forest Goals of the UN Strategic Plan for Forests.
