IUFRO The Advocate for Forest Science.
At the UN Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) meeting in Hyderabad, India, the IUFRO-led GFEP successfully presented some emerging key messages of its current assessment on the relationship between biodiversity, forest management and potential REDD+ activities. With input of more than 50 leading scientists from around the world, this assessment will constitute the first comprehensive analysis to date of the relationship between biodiversity, forest management and REDD+. It seeks to provide decision-makers with most up-to-date scientific information on how these complex relationships may be affected by management activities implemented to achieve REDD+ objectives. The assessment report will be officially launched on the occasion of the next UN climate convention (UNFCCC) meeting from 26 November to 7 December 2012 in Doha, Qatar.
The panel will prepare a comprehensive global assessment of available scientific information about the relationship of forests and trees with food security and nutrition.
