New dates for the World Forestry Congress in Seoul - Korea May 2022

Monday, April 19 , 2021 1556

The XV World Forestry Congress was scheduled in Republic of Korea, from 24 to 28 May 2021 in Seoul.

The topic of the congress is: "Building a green, healthy and resilient future with forests".

 

Due to the sanitarian situation, the organizers just decided to postpone this World Congress.

The new dates are now known: 2 to 6 May 2022, next year.

 

The World Forestry Congress is held every 6 years under the auspices of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), and aims to bring together a broad range of stakeholders to review and analyze current forest and land use issues, and propose solutions for improved management and use of these resources. The Congress is open to all stakeholders, including governments non-governmental and civil society organizations, private sector, academia, and other interested parties and individuals.

The first Congress was held in Italy in 1926.

 

The World Forestry Congress is the most influential conference in forestry, serving as the global platform for members of the international community to come together and issue recommendations and declarations on major forest issues. The XV World Forestry Congress in 2021 will set the stage for a timely discussion of how forests can help address and adapt to climate change, combat desertification, preserve biodiversity, and resolve other global environmental issues. At the same time, the coming global gathering will provide a great opportunity to build cross-border cooperation and partnerships in forestry. Additionally, Korea’s economic development model and success story in reforestation will offer valuable lessons to those countries now in similar circumstances to what our country has gone through in the past.

 

The theme of the XV World Forestry Congress is “Building a Green, Healthy and Resilient Future with Forests.” As the COVID-19 pandemic sweeps the world, it is necessary, indeed, to discuss forests in relation to what role they can play in creating a green, healthy future.
