Forests are pivotal in climate change mitigation and adaptation efforts. However, the lack of transparency in forest data poses significant challenges to effective policy-making and monitoring. Transparent forest data is crucial for informed decision-making and sustainable management practices. To address this gap, FAO and GEF are launching the second phase of the CBIT-Forest project, aimed at accelerating capacity-building, knowledge-sharing, and awareness-raising globally.

Join this webinar for an opportunity to:

  • Dive deep into the importance of forest data transparency for climate action with insights from international experts and countries.
  • Gain valuable insights into the challenges and barriers hindering transparency in the forest sector.
  • Learn about strategies employed by countries to enhance capacity-building, knowledge-sharing, and awareness-raising in forest data transparency.
  • Explore opportunities for collaboration and partnerships to drive forward transparency efforts.
  • Get a comprehensive overview of FAO/GEF’s new CBIT-Forest II project and its anticipated outcomes.
