IUFRO-GFEP Global Assessment Report on Forests and Poverty: Introducing Lead Authors

1 Jul 2020

This autumn a report will be launched on how forests and tree-based landscapes can affect poverty and the wellbeing of the poor.

In 2019, the International Union of Forest Research Organizations (IUFRO), on behalf of the Collaborative Partnership on Forests (CPF), established an Expert Panel on Forests and Poverty in the framework of the Global Forest Expert Panel (GFEP) initiative.

The Expert Panel has meanwhile carried out a comprehensive global assessment of available scientific information about the interactions between forests and poverty. The resulting report will inform relevant international policy processes and the discussions on the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and related SDGs.
