Under the theme of "Building a green, healthy and resilient future with forests" the World Forestry Congress showcased the essential role of forests in the global sustainable development agenda.

Throughout the Congress IUFRO was highly visible with numerous IUFRO officeholders as prominent speakers, with a series of interesting side events and with a beautiful booth in the exhibition area promoting the IUFRO World Congress 2024 in Stockholm, Sweden. The Congress also offered IUFRO excellent opportunities to meet and discuss current and future cooperation with important partners and organizations.

At the WFC, IUFRO launched its report about the outcomes of more than 10 years of REDD+ implementation at the WFC. This global assessment report, prepared by IUFRO's Global Forest Expert Panel (GFEP), showcases the effects of REDD+ implementation on forests, carbon, biodiversity and people. Authors of the report spoke about the current challenges faced and trade-offs in implementing REDD+ and looked to possible pathways for the future.

This issue of IUFRO News also includes a short report about IUFRO's role at 17th Session of the United Nations Forum on Forests (UNFF17). Furthermore, you will find information about a new book describing IUFRO awards and awardees. More reports from IUFRO sessions at the WFC may be published in the June issue of the newsletter.
