Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt - More clarity on who ‘owns’ emissions reductions is still needed to access different sources of forest carbon finance and protect the rights of vulnerable groups, according to a new information brief released today by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO).

The report also...

Forests provide natural solutions to the global climate, health, biodiversity and food crises. Consequently, countries around the world are implementing programs and actions to halt deforestation and conserveand restore forests resources.   Member countries of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) have widely recognized social forestry as an appropriate way to enhance local livelihoods and achieve the sustainable management of forests.

Forests have become a permanent fixture in climate discussions, from their inclusion in the Paris Agreement to the recent Glasgow Leader’s Declaration on Forests and Land Use at COP26. These ecosystems provide vital solutions for halting global climate change and enabling sustainable development. Harnessing the power of forests also requires ongoing communication and collaboration among international climate and forestry experts to drive cross sectoral and multi-level action. Organized by the Korea Forest Service (KFS) and the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) last month, the World Forestry Congress (WFC) presented an opportunity for the international community to evaluate the state of the world’s forest resources and consider the...
