FOREST EUROPE explains the road from Oslo to Madrid at UNFF10

On the occasion of the 10th session of the UN Forum on Forest (UNFF10), FOREST EUROPE organized a side event to explain the road from Oslo to the Madrid Extraordinary Ministerial Conference.

Matthias Schwoerer, from Germany, and Elena Estrada plus Edurne Lacalle, from FOREST EUROPE Liaison Unit Madrid, made presentations that explained the ongoing negotiations for a legally binding agreement on forest in Europe which started with the Oslo Mandate in June 2011. The Fourth and last session of negotiations is scheduled for the 10th – 14th June in Warsaw, Poland. The results will be reported to the Extraordinary Ministerial Conference on early November in Madrid.


The UNFF10 was held from 8-19 April 2013, in Istanbul, Turkey, focusing on the theme “Forests and Economic Development.” Nearly 1300 participants addressed a range of issues including: forests and economic development, means of implementation for sustainable forest management (SFM), and emerging issues, including the outcomes of the UN Conference on Sustainable Development (UNCSD or Rio+20), the post-2015 development agenda and the future of the international arrangement on forests.
