The tenth session of the United Nations Forum on Forests (UNFF10, Istanbul, 8-19 April) will assess the overall progress made on the implementation of the Non-Legally Binding Instrument on all types Forests (forest instrument) and achievement of its four Global Objectives on Forests (GOFs)
Assessing progress towards implementation of the forest instrument and the achievement of the four Global Objectives on Forests are critical components of the work of the UNFF, and is an important part of the session of the Forum to deliberate on these issues. The tenth session will, therefore, also assess the overall progress made on the implementation of the forest instrument and achievement of its four Global Objectives on Forests.
The Secretariat has prepared a streamlined national reporting format [F, S] in response to the request made in the Resolution on Forest for People, adopted at the ninth session of the Forum in February 2011. The Member States are encouraged to use the format to provide information to the Secretariat and kindly submit their voluntary national reports by 30 September 2012. The input received from countries will greatly help in preparing the Secretary General's Report to UNFF10 on these issues.
Workshops to Strengthen National Reporting
National Reports and Reponses by Member States
Reports and Reponses by Regional and Sub-Regional Entities
The multi-year programme of work (2007-2015) of the United Nations Forum on Forests (UNFF) sets a new focus on regional collaboration and partnerships. Since its eighth session in 2009 the Forum has solicited inputs from relevant regional and subregional forest related mechanisms, institutions, organizations and processes as an integral part of session deliberations.
At its ninth session, the Forum invited regional and subregional organizations to strengthen their contributions to the work of the Forum and to provide input, in the context of the overall theme for UNFF10, on their efforts towards the implementation of the non-legally binding instrument on all types of forests and its four Global Objectives on Forests, through sharing regional perspectives, approaches and experiences. Regional activities on North-South and South-South cooperation, including triangular cooperation on SFM were also encouraged.
The Forum Secretariat developed this reporting format for regional and subregional entities in order to facilitate regional inputs for the tenth session of the Forum (UNFF10), to be held from 8 to 19 April 2013 in Istanbul, Turkey.
