Tune in to the COVID-19 Forestry Webinar Week

Building back better: COVID-19 pandemic recovery contributions
from the forest sector

The week is organized by FAO in close collaboration with the Collaborative Partnership on Forests

The COVID-19 Forestry Webinar Week will feature a series of virtual sessions in the week in which COFO25 and the World Forest Week were originally scheduled. The sessions comprise high-level events as well as technical thematic sessions.

 The COVID-19 Forestry Webinar Week will assess impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on people and forests; identify and discuss possible responses that help mitigate impacts on people and forests and help address the situation in the short term while at the same time contributing to building a more resilient and sustainable future; propose follow-up steps, including policy dialogue and mobilizing of resources and action that better enables the forest sector to help rebuild sustainable and resilient societies – building back better.
