About the product

This publication is aimed at enhancing our understanding of how forests and their sustainable management contribute to achieving several of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Time is running out for the world’s forests: we need to work across sectors, bring stakeholders together, and take urgent action. The 2018 edition identifies actions that can be taken to increase the contributions of forests and trees that are necessary to accelerate progress towards the SDGs. It is now critical that steps be taken to work more effectively with the private sector, and the informal forest sector must be transformed in order to bring broader economic, social and environmental benefits.
