Workshop on the Mid-Term Review of the Rovaniemi Action Plan for the Forest Sector in a Green Economy

13/02/2018 (All day) - 14/02/2018 (All day)

The ECE/FAO Forestry and Timber Section would kindly like to invite you to a Workshop on the Mid-Term Review of the Rovaniemi Action Plan for the Forest Sector in a Green Economy (RAP), taking place in Geneva from 13 to 14 February 2018.

In December 2013, at the joint session of the ECE Committee on Forests and Forest Industry and the FAO European Forestry Commission, member States adopted the Rovaniemi Action Plan for the Forest Sector in a Green Economy. The Rovaniemi Action Plan proposes an overall vision, strategies and areas of activity to enhance the transition of the forest sector in the ECE region towards a green economy.

The workshop offers an opportunity to reflect on the implementation of the RAP up to now, to contribute to the mid-term review and to discuss actions to be implemented in the remaining time of the RAP implementation. For detailed information about the workshop, please refer to the concept note: https://www.unece.org/fileadmin/DAM/timber/meetings/2018/20180213/RAP_Workshop-draft_concept_note.pdf.
