AFoCO at the XV World Forestry Congress

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 was held on 2-6 May 2022 at COEX, Seoul, Republic of Korea.  The XV WFC was convened under the theme of “Building a Green, Healthy and Resilient Future with Forests.” 

AFoCO’s engagement at the XV WFC will built momentum towards the launching of regional initiatives, forged partnerships to facilitate the delivery of impacts from ongoing or new programs, and promoted 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.
