Forest Day 3
December 13, 2009
Radisson SAS Falconer Hotel
2009 is possibly the most important year for forests in living memory. We are in the final stretch of the road to Copenhagen, and COP 15, where negotiators expect to finalise a post-Kyoto global climate agreement in December. To coincide with the conference, CIFOR, the Collaborative Partnership on Forests (CPF) and the Government of Denmark will host Forest Day 3. Forest Day 3 will build on the success of Forest Day 1 and 2 in helping to ensure forests are high on the agenda for future climate outcomes, and will pave the way forward in making these outcomes work beyond Copenhagen.
Forest Day 3 builds on a series of influential events. Forest Day 1 in Bali in 2007 helped inform the inclusion of forests in the Bali Action Plan. Forest Day 2 brought together almost 1000 participants and highlighted the importance of managing forests for livelihoods, biodiversity and other benefits such as mitigating climate change. Forest Day 3 is directing its energies towards ensuring that the design and implementation of forest-related climate measures are effective, efficient and equitable.
