Save the date - 4 April - Launch Event for Issue Brief 'Forests, Energy and Livelihoods'
by Brigitte Burger
Calling all those involved in forests, energy and livelihoods!
A new multi-agency issue brief highlights the links between these sectors and the leap forward that could come from them working more closely together.
Do you work in forests, energy or livelihoods? Are you searching for ways to boost progress towards the Sustainable Development Goals?
If so, take a moment to look at this new FAO/IUFRO/UNDP/UNFF issue brief, Forests, Energy and Livelihoods<https://www.un.org/esa/forests/wp-content/uploads/2023/03/ISSUE-BRIEF-Fores…>, which neatly sums up the current state of play in these sectors and why they are inextricably linked. It explains why managing forests more sustainably brings huge benefits to all those who depend on wood for fuel or forest products for a livelihood. And calls for more joined up thinking across these sectors to accelerate progress towards SDGs on poverty, hunger and clean energy.
Now is the time to put heads together on this!
Join the global event on April 4 (10.00-13.00 EDT) on UN Web TV<https://media.un.org/en/webtv> and follow the discussion about integrated approaches across these sectors ahead of the 2023 SDG Summit at the UN General Assembly high-level week in September.
