High Level Dialogue on Urban and Peri-urban Forestry at the FAO Committee on Forestry

High Level Dialogue: Urban & Peri-Urban Forestry

Dear EFUF Colleagues:

Per Simone Borelli of FAO, there will be a High Level Dialogue on Urban and Periurban Forestry in the framework of the 24th Session of the FAO Committee on Forestry.

The event will take place on 17 July from 10:00 to 11:30 Rome time. You may follow the event via webstreaming at: http://www.fao.org/webcast/home/en/item/4796/icode/

The objectives of the high level dialogue are to:
– raise awareness of the key contribution that urban forests and green spaces can provide towards the achievement of sustainable development;
– provide compelling arguments for cities to invest in urban forestry; and,
– foster cross-sectoral collaboration towards an effective integration of urban forestry in the urban planning, design and management for more sustainable urban development.

Please try to attend this important online dialogue.
