This Conference aimed at taking stock of what we know, at identifying new synergies and at informing future work, in our common fight against global deforestation and forest degradation.
- Increase visibility of challenges and possible solutions related to forest loss and degradation at global level, identify possible areas of convergence/agreement between stakeholders, outline possible new actions in support of existing targets;
- Build synergies between key players from public and private sectors, as well as civil society, both from EU and developing countries with a view to help future climate negotiations;
- Inform further (EU) work on REDD+, Sustainable Development Goals, CBD Biodiversity Strategy, FLEGT Action Plan, Resource Efficiency Roadmap and the fight against deforestation move generally.
In the coming weeks I will present a package of initiatives that will further pave the way
