UNFF Issue Briefs published
October 23, 2015
The UNFF Secretariat recently published a set of four Issue Briefs on the UN Forum on Forests, the UN Forest Instrument, the UNFF Global Forest Financing Facilitation Network and the International Arrangement on Forests (IAF) beyond 2015.
The 2-page issue briefs provide a succinct overview of some of the key developments emanating from the 11th Session of the UN Forum on Forests (UNFF11) in May 2015. The two key outcomes of UNFF11 were the resolution on the “International Arrangement on Forests beyond 2015” and the Ministerial Declaration on “The forests we want: beyond 2015”. The UNFF11 resolution was subsequently adopted by the UN Economic and Social Council on 22 July 2015.
