PEFC Forest Certification Week 2016 in Bali

Saturday, November 05 , 2016 1721

As the world’s leaders head to Marrakech this November for the latest climate change talks, PEFC is gathering its stakeholders in Bali to explore how we can amplify the essential role that forests and trees play in providing solutions to some of the world’s most complex challenges.

7 billion people live on our planet, this means that demands for food and fiber are continuing to mount. Agriculture, conservation, development and other land uses all compete for space.

We already know that forests have a vital role to play, a role that has been further reinforced within the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the Paris Climate Accord. And we hope, as the Conference of the Parties meet again, that forests will once again be a high priority.

And while they are busy with advancing global policies, we will be getting down to the details: how can we implement this on the ground.

 

PEFC organizes its 2016 PEFC Stakeholder Dialogue. This year PEFC members will explore the role of forest certification and sustainable supply chains in promoting sustainable landscapes for sustainable livelihoods. 

PEFC will provoke exchange on how sustainable forestry and forest certification can contribute beyond traditional boundaries to accelerate sustainable development.

This meeting will be in Bali island, Indonesia.

 

This year, the PEFC Stakeholder Dialogue closes the 2016 PEFC Forest Certification Week. Spanning a full week, PEFC Week is a perfect opportunity for everyone along the forest certification supply chain to gather together to discuss some of the key topics in the world of forestry.

 

Held between the 14 - 18 November 2016, PEFC Forest Certification Week includes the PEFC General Assembly, meetings and workshops dedicated to our members and invited guests, and comes to a close with the two day PEFC Stakeholder Dialogue, open to everybody.
