Silva2015 - joint session of the ECE Committee on Forests and the Forest Industry and the FAO European Forestry Commission

Silva2015 - joint session of the ECE Committee on Forests and the Forest Industry and the FAO European Forestry Commission

02 - 06 November 2015
Engelberg Switzerland

Values of Forests at the Heart of Silva2015

Thirty-nine countries from Europe, the Russian Federation, Central Asia, the Caucasus and North America agreed to continue their efforts to build climate change into national forest programmes, strategies and plans, and encouraged each other to play an active part in the work of the United Nations Forum on Forests (UNFF). They also asked UNECE and FAO to work on developing global forest-related indicators related to Sustainable Development Goals, building on existing indicators. Countries were strongly interested in developing markets and investments for forest ecosystem services, and appraised the Market Discussions as a unique platform for information and experience exchange on forest products markets at regional level.

These were the main outcomes of Silva 2015, the joint session of the UNECE Committee on Forests and the Forest Industry (COFFI) and the FAO European Forestry Commission (EFC), which took place from 2 - 6 November 2015 in Engelberg, Switzerland, during the 3rd European Forest Week.

Mr Christian Friis Bach, Executive Secretary, UNECE; Mr Tony Alonzi, Deputy Regional Representative for Europe and Central Asia, FAO; Ms Doris Leuthard, Minister of Environment, Switzerland, addressed more than two hundred international participants at the opening ceremony. Mr Thomas Gass, Assistant Secretary-General of the UN, underlined the importance of forests in meeting the Sustainable Developments Goals and stressed the importance of taking a cross-sectoral approach.

Participants of Silva 2015 discussed the values of forests. The meeting brought together people from forestry and other interests, including government representatives and delegations, forest owners, industry, businesses, environmental NGOs, academics and students. 

The 3rd European Forest Week opened with the announcements of the winners of the FAO photo contest “Value of Forests” and the International Russian Junior Forestry Contest organized by the Russian Federation. More than 25 forest related side events took place during the week. There were almost 40 poster displays from Swiss and international research institutes and others. Side events covered a huge range of forest-related topics, including most recent innovative applications of wood, Canadian and Central African indigenous community forest management, green jobs in the forest sector, forest biodiversity and wildlife management.

Silva2015 and European Forest Week ended with a day of excursions in the magnificent Oberwald and NeidWald regions, organized by the host country Switzerland, covering disaster risk management, forest biodiversity, protective forests in mountainous regions and use of wood for building and energy
