The guidelines titled, ‘Making Forest Concessions in the Tropics Work to Achieve the 2030 Agenda: Voluntary Guidelines,’ were published by FAO in collaboration with the European Forest Institute, and are a product of the Forest Concessions Initiative. Developed through a consultative process and building on best practices of forest concessions around the world, the guidelines offer a framework for planning, implementing and monitoring forest concessions to support sustainable forest management and SDG achievement.
