The theme of the XV WFC is Building a Building a Green, Healthy and Resilient Future with Forests. Under this overarching theme, there are six sub-themes which will address the most important current issues concerning forests and the products and services they provide:

  • the importance of containing and reversing forest and tree-cover loss in attaining multiple global goals;

  • forests’ role in addressing global environmental challenges, including climate change and biodiversity conservation;

  • the important contribution of forest products and services to national economies and strategies for enhanced financing in the sector;

  • the use of forest resources to improve livelihoods, health and well-being;

  • ways to improve forest monitoring, data collection and knowledge management; and

  • enhancing multi-stakeholder partnerships and cooperation for the improved management and utilization of forest resources.

“With UN-REDD’s track record and legitimacy in REDD+ countries, its ability to draw on technical expertise from across its constituent UN agencies, and its ability to serve as an honest broker among various stakeholder groups, I can’t imagine why the international community wouldn’t increase public support to UN-REDD to fulfil this role.” ​
