FAO Invites Comments on Guidelines for Forest Policymakers

25 May 2011: The Food and Agriculture Organization of the UN (FAO) has released a zero draft of the "Climate Change for Forest Policy Makers- An approach for integrating climate change into national forest programmes in support of sustainable forest management," and is calling for comments on the draft by 20 June 2011.

The draft is part of the FAO Forestry Department's and National Forest Programme Facility's programme on integrating climate change issues into national forest programmes. The development of guidelines is the second phase of the programme following preliminary analyses of the challenges and opportunities climate change poses for the forest sector in Cambodia, Paraguay, South Africa and Tanzania. The final guide is expected to be published in September 2011. [Invite for Comments on Climate Change for Forest Policy Makers] [Publication: Zero Draft of Climate Change for Forest Policy Makers]
