About the event

This webinar is being held in the context of events during the General Assembly high level segment in September 2020, which will set out the vision for global sustainable development in the post-COVID-19 era, including the SDG Moment, the celebration of the 75th anniversary of the United Nations, SDG Business Forum and the Biodiversity Summit. In this regard, the webinar will provide a timely opportunity to showcase the interlinkages between achieving the Global Forest Goals and delivering the SDGs during the Decade of Action, as well as the significance of forests to the post-2020 global biodiversity framework and climate change agenda.

The programme of the webinar includes presentations by distinguished panelists, from different backgrounds and affiliations, who will share their views on how the implementation of the UN Strategic Plan for Forests 2030 can help to build a greener and fairer post-pandemic future. The webinar will be open to all relevant stakeholders, including members of the United Nations Forum on Forests, international and regional organizations, non-governmental organizations, civil society, the business sector, as well as the general public.

Discussions will address the importance of a holistic and balanced approach to the sustainable management of natural resources. If the aspiration for a green COVID-19 recovery is to materialize, sustainable and healthy forest ecosystems and resilient forest-dependent communities have to be its major pillar.
