Forestry Intensification for Shared Value

Forests are an essential nature-based solution however the demand for forest-based products is likely to grow in the coming decades, while the land available to produce them will shrink. This is placing increased importance on striking the balance between protection and production.

Current approaches, including sustainable consumption are unlikely to be sufficient to fill this gap if the combined aspirations of Agenda 2030, the Paris Climate Agreement, and the post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework are to be fulfilled.

Join this side-meeting, organized by the FSC Sustainable Intensification Advisory Group (SIAG), to share your perspectives on creating shared value in the wider landscape and benefits for all.
