Applying Sustainable Forest Management to Poverty Reduction: Strengthening the Multi-Stakeholder Approachwithin the UNFF.

The workshop will take place from 26-30 July 2010 in Accra, Ghana, and is being hosted in collaboration with the government of Ghana with support from the UNFF Secretariat and a number of other governments and will be in English. It aims to bring together approximately 120 key representatives from Major Groups, governments and intergovernmental organizations.
Goals and Objectives

The Multi-Stakeholder Workshop in Ghana is designed to support the UNFF process by enhancing meaningful participation of Major Groups[1]at the policy-making level, and building momentumtowards implementation.

The workshop has four key objectives:

(i) Develop concrete recommendations for UNFF 9 (24 January-4 February, 2011) which has the theme of "Forests for people, livelihoods and poverty eradication";

(ii) Identify strengths and weaknesses of the Multi-Stakeholder Dialogue process associated with the UNFF, and create specific recommendations for increasing its effectiveness;

(iii) Identify specific activities for Major Groups' contribution to the UN International Year of Forests (2011);

(iv) Foster alliances, partnerships and networking within Major Groups and between Major Groups and other key players in the UNFF process.

Major Groups participating in the UNFF process have undertaken a selection process for participants to be considered for funding for the workshop.

Limited opportunities to participate in the event are still available for those who are able to self-finance or find funding from other sources (e.g. their universities, organizations, or government departments).  These places will be provided on a first come, first served, basis. If you are interested in this possibility, please contact us.
