The Ninth Session (UNFF9, New York, 24 January - 4 February 2010) will assess the overall progress made on the implementation of the Non-Legally Binding Instrument on All Types of Forests (Forest Instrument) and towards the achievement of the four Global Objectives on Forests.
In preparation of the Secretary General's Report for the Ninth Session, the countries were
invited to share the UNFF Secretariat their most recent national information, experiences, and lessons learned on implementing the Forest Instrument and their progress regarding the four objectives.
To facilitate the submission of information, the Secretariat prepared a suggested format and guidelines. The format was based on the main tasks related to monitoring, assessment and reporting provisions in the MYPOW of the forum. It is expected to help shape the design of a comprehensive reporting process for the 2015 review of the international arrangement on forest, as mandated by Forum resolution 7/1. The countries' input is invaluable regarding the Report and aids to generate awareness concerning the forest communities' progress in implementing the Forest Instrument, while identifying where further work is needed.

The Forum's Multi-Year Programme (2007-2015) highlights the role of regional collaboration and partnerships in sustainable forest management, and invites relevant regional and subregional entities to address UNFF issues and agenda items. Furthermore, the Forum requests regional and subregional entities to submit concise summaries of their deliberations and requested the Secretary-General to prepare a report summarizing these submissions.
In 2010, to facilitate these regional and subregional inputs, the Secretariat prepared a questionnaire suggesting issues for consideration related to the UNFF9 themes of "Forests for people, livelihoods and poverty eradication", "Assessment of progress made on the implementation of the non-legally binding instrument on all types of forests and towards the achievement of the four Global Objectives on Forests" and "International Year of Forests 2011". Entities were also invited to provide information on experiences with regional and subregional level cooperation, partnership approaches and joint activities which contribute to the Forum's work.
Voluntary reports submitted by regional and sub-regional entities are provided below in alphabetical order.
