Announcing the FAO World Forestry Congress XIV
The XIV World Forestry Congress (WFC) “Forests and People: Investing in a sustainable Future” by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations will be held in Africa this year for the first time in history. The WFC serves as a platform to share knowledge on forests, forestry, and to address the key issues of sustainable development with the major role of forests.
For the 14th WFC, youth involvement has been prioritized. This will give youths the unique chance to listen to great speakers from all over the world, be part of discussions with professionals and stakeholders, and build connections with participants from a wide range of backgrounds. So let’s raise the voices of youth and get involved in the XIV WFC in Durban, South Africa!
