UN DESA will be holding a national workshop in the Islamic Republic of Iran from May 18 to May 30, 2018 to discuss and validate the draft project concept on sustainable forest management to be financed by a multilateral financing mechanism. This project concept is the result of ongoing close collaboration between the Global Forest Financing Facilitation Network (GFFFN) of the United Nations Forum on Forests and the Forest, Rangelands and Watershed Management Organisation (FRWO) of Iran, whereby the GFFFN provided capacity building and technical advisory services to FRWO in mobilizing financing for sustainable forest management. The workshop will include stakeholders from related sectors (notably environment, agriculture, petroleum and energy) as well as the private sector, civil society and relevant intergovernmental organisations.
