Program on Forests (PROFOR) : informing connecting and shaping forest action for 2015 (Inglês)

The year 2015 was pivotal for the global agenda on sustainable development with the adoption of the Sustainable Development Goals and the Paris Agreement under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change. These decisive agreements by global leaders reaffirmed the central role forests must play in meeting the pressing development challenges author face, mitigating and adapting to climate change, creating resilient landscapes that sustain rural populations and urban dwellers, and spurring green growth that generates jobs and economic development. Results from these and other PROFOR activities (totaling 43 in 2015) are informing national forest programs, policies, and institutions and are shaping sustainable development strategies more broadly. Looking forward, PROFOR analysis and tools will be helpful to countries as they implement their nationally determined contributions to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and increase their resilience to climate change through better forest and land management. The World Bank Group will be presenting a new Forest Action Plan (FAP) to guide our work over the next five years. The FAP sets out a programmatic approach to our forest sector engagement that consolidates the Group’s forest-related instruments to support country-specific programs for sustainable management of forest landscapes. PROFOR’s analytical work on forest enterprises, governance, and monitoring and evaluation, among other issues, contributed significantly to the FAP and will be fundamental for its implementation in 2016 and beyond.
