Forests, Trees and the Eradication of Poverty: Potential and Limitations

Join the virtual launch of the Global Assessment Report, edited by Daniel C Miller, Stephanie Mansourian and Christoph Wildburger, on 15 October 2020!

A new and most comprehensive scientific assessment presented by the Global Forest Experts Panel (GFEP) on Forests and Poverty reveals critical links between forests, trees and poverty alleviation. The report makes a valuable contribution to achieving the first and foremost of the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals aimed at ending poverty. This is even more important in light of the current pandemic under which efforts to fight poverty have suffered a severe setback. The International Union of Forest Research Organizations (IUFRO), on behalf of the Collaborative Partnership on Forests (CPF), established the Panel in the framework of the GFEP Initiative.
