Join IUFRO Global Forest Expert Panels (GFEP) Programme for the online and on-site launch of IUFRO-GFEP’s new major global assessment report at a World Forestry Congress (WFC) side event in Seoul!

Forests play a pivotal role in regulating our global climate and represent a cornerstone of our strategy to tackle climate change. REDD+ was conceived as a mechanism to compensate low- and middle-income countries for the conservation of their forests. The new assessment evaluates the actual on-the-ground impacts of REDD+ activities on forests, climate, biodiversity and people.
