COFO24 / WFW6 Side Event - Creating Synergies between Forestry and Social Protection

Ethiopia Room (FAO Headquarters)
 Rome time

Evidence shows that combining social protection and forest policy instruments can help to conserve forests, while increasing the resilience of forest-dependent communities. The side-event aims to: facilitate knowledge sharing and a discussion on FAO’s work on establishing synergies between social protection and forestry; launch two new working papers: “A diagnostic on social protection needs and opportunities for forest-dependent communities in the United Republic of Tanzania” and “The role of forest producer organizations in social protection“; and discuss the way forward.
