The AFF Constitution requires that it holds a meeting of ALL members of the African Forest Forum once every five years. This is called the AFF Members’ Forum. The first meeting was held in 2012 and the second one in 2017. The third one is planned for 2022.

The third meeting will take three working days, starting on Tuesday 28 June up to Thursday 30 June 2022. This is to allow members sufficient time to read the documents prepared for the meeting.

Time has been allocated to discuss each agenda item (see agenda below). On the indicated dates that is when views will be exchanged on the agenda item allocated for that day. Once  through with it, the next agenda item will be discussed. For each item discussed and for each day, the contributions will be summarised from members and feedback shared, which you might want to react to. This way all can contribute to the discussions and decisions reached by the Forum.

Members are urged to take this meeting very seriously and participate effectively; given that there are many things that are affecting our forests and trees outside forests and their eventual supply of ecosystem services.

The African Forest Forum is for our members; it can only be as strong as you make it.
