Forests and Climate Change after Lima
The outcomes of COP 20 are expected to have a significant impact on developments in the field of forests and climate change over the coming year. In view of this, forest sector stakeholders in Asia and the Pacific require succinct and accurate information on the implications of the COP 20 discussions and their significance to forest policy decisions and practice. Since 2010, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations and RECOFTC – The Center for People and Forests have been jointly organizing Post-COP expert consultations to identify the implications of the COP discussions to forest policy makers and practitioners. The findings of these consultations are published in a simple and succinct format, in the form of a set of key questions and responses from the experts, so as to inform forest sector stakeholders in the Asia-Pacific region.
