TFD and its partners will be at this year’s World Forestry Congress in Durban, South Africa, from 7-11 September 2015. The XIV World Forestry Congress, the first to take place in Africa, will bring together the global forestry community to review and clarify the importance of forests as an integral part of sustainable development and to identify and discuss the major issues facing the forest sector.
On the occasion of the XIV World Forestry Congress, this publication from the FAO Subregional Office for Southern Africa supports countries in the region to present the best practices, challenges and opportunities in the forestry sector of Southern Africa.
The forests of Southern Africa comprise a multitude of forest types and ecosystems, ranging from mangroves to rainforests, dry and humid ecosystems and are home to an incredible wealth and diversity of fauna and flora. They provide significant benefits in terms of timber and wood as well as non-wood forest products and an array of ecosystem services, not to mention supporting millions of livelihoods across the subregion. But the forests face increasing pressure from the negative impacts of climate change and massive agricultural expansion. The need to share best practices to overcome such challenges is becoming more important than ever.
Updates on the largest forestry event of 2015 and the key occasion for the world’s foresters and forest supporters to gather, share their expertise and experience, and project a new vision for the future.
