Convened every six years by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), the World Forestry Congress (WFC) is one of the world’s largest global gatherings of foresters. Postponed by the COVID-19 pandemic, the upcoming 15th session of the WFC will be held on 2-6 May 2022 at COEX, Seoul, Republic of Korea.  The theme of the XV WFC is set out as “Building a Green, Healthy and Resilient Future with Forests.” 

AFoCO’s engagement at the XV WFC will aim to build momentum towards the launching of regional initiatives, forge partnerships to facilitate the delivery of impacts from ongoing or new programs, and promote the achievement of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the Paris Agreement, UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration (2021-2030), and the Post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework, through collective actions with its member countries and strategic partners.
