"Good data are the backbone of good, evidence-based policy making and decision taking. They enable experts to analyse the progress towards achieving sustainable development goals.” With these words, Paola Deda, Director of Forest, Land and Housing Division at UNECE, opened the 43rd session of the Joint ECE/FAO Working Party on Forest Statistics, Economics and Management. The event took place in a hybrid format from 1 to 3 June 2022 and was held in accordance with the Joint Section’s mandate to share knowledge and provide guidance to policymakers through research and awareness-raising activities.

The session served as a forum for members to present and discuss case studies, best practices and future projects on several forests and forest-industry related topics including data, monitoring, reporting and assessment, policy, dialogue and advice, communication and outreach, capacity building, and forests and the circular economy.

In line with the Joint UNECE/FAO latest publication “Circularity Concepts in Forest-based Industries”, the event highlighted the circular nature of wood as a resource that can be used, reused, recycled and biodegraded and brought attention to the application of circular economy models in forest-based industries while reiterating the key role of sustainable forest management. Discussions among experts led to the identification of the requirements and barriers of circularity in forest-based industries in terms of design, resource management, economics, investments and collaboration opportunities while also encouraging exchange of ideas on ways in which the Joint UNECE/FAO Forestry and Timber Section could promote and support transition to circularity.
