Theme

Building a Green, Healthy, and Resilient Future with Forests

The six sub-themes of the XV World Forestry Congress set out below, address the most important current issues concerning forests and the products and services they provide. The sub-themes also enable the review of progress in implementing the outcomes of previous congresses, especially the Durban Declaration, and the advances being made towards a sustainable, resilient future. In particular, the sub-themes address:

  • the importance of containing and reversing forest and tree-cover loss in attaining multiple global goals;
  • forests’ role in addressing global environmental challenges, including climate change and biodiversity conservation;
  • the important contribution of forest products and services to national economies and strategies for enhanced financing in the sector;
  • the use of forest resources to improve livelihoods, health and well-being;
  • ways to improve forest monitoring, data collection and knowledge management; and
  • enhancing multistakeholder partnerships and cooperation for the improved management and utilization of forest resources.

Indicative topics are listed under each sub-theme to facilitate the preparation of sessions. This list should not be considered exhaustive.

  1. Turning the tide: reversing deforestation and forest degradation
  2. Nature-based solutions for climate change adaptation and mitigation and biodiversity conservation
  3. The green pathway to growth and sustainability
  4. Forests and human health: revisiting the connections
  5. Managing and communicating forest information and knowledge
  6. Forests without boundaries: enhancing management and cooperation

How to Participate

All Congress participants must be registered. Registration allows participation in all Congress sessions including the subtheme dialogues and side and other networking events. Participants may also request an exhibition booth to display their products and publications.

The XV World Forestry Congress will support the full participation and contribution of youth, and the programme will ensure youth contributions that will stem from debates among peers as well as inter-generational discussions on the most pressing issues facing forests and forestry.

WFC 2021

The XV World Forestry Congress will be hosted by the Government of the Republic of Korea From 2 to 6 May 2022 and held at the COEX Convention and Exhibition Center in Seoul. The Congress will bring together global forest stakeholders to review and analyze key challenges facing the sector and ways to address these. Participation is usually diverse, with representation from all regions and sectors; including the public and private sector, NGOs, CSOs, scientific or professional bodies, and forestry societies, as well as those who simply care about forests and the environment.

The WFC 2021 will provide a unique opportunity for the global forestry community to consider the state and future of world forestry, particularly in the context of the recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic, while striving to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals. The Congress will focus on defining the role of forests in the global developmental agenda (2030 Agenda) and other major agreements (Global Forest Goals, Paris Agreement, post-2020 global biodiversity framework) and identify key measures that must be put in place as the forest sector adjusts to the new reality and aims to help ‘build back better. Forests must be an integral part of discussions and decisions to be made on sustainable development because this will determine the health, wellbeing, and stability of the planet and the people.

Historical Context

The World Forestry Congress is held approximately once every six years. The first Congress was held in Italy in 1926. FAO has helped host countries organize the Congress since 1954. Responsibility for the organization and financing of each Congress lies with the host country.

For information on past Congresses can be found here.

The Congress is a forum for the exchange of views and experiences on all aspects of forests and forestry, which may lead to the formulation of broad recommendations applicable at national, regional, and global levels. The Congress also provides a periodical opportunity to produce an overview of the sector, in order to discern trends, adapt policies, create awareness in decision-makers, and influence public opinion. Given the high number of participants (several thousand in each conference), it is a valuable forum for strengthening the role of forests in general as well as in the context of critical environmental, economic, and social issues and taking into account the developments in the global sustainable development agenda.

The Congress is not an intergovernmental meeting; it has no formal constituencies or country delegations. The implementation of recommendations is a matter for those to whom these are addressed – stakeholders like governments, international organizations, scientific bodies, forest owners, among others – in the light of their own particular circumstances.

Exchanges of knowledge within the forest sector, and between the forest sector and other sectors, benefit all countries. The diffusion of scientific and technical advances as well as the human contacts promoted by these congresses contribute to a better global understanding of the sector.
