Sustainable urban forestry is vital for health and wellbeing, climate adaptation and mitigation, biodiversity, and resilience. Integrated long term planning and timely action is critical to unlock these multiple benefits, overcome traditional silos and the challenges faced by sustainable urban forestry practitioners.
The Informal Network of Experts on Sustainable Urban Forestry provides a forum for knowledge exchange and capacity-building as well as peer to peer learning to strengthen sustainable urban forestry. This includes both horizontal engagement across disciplines and sectors, as well as vertical engagement with various levels of government to provide support to practitioners to identify, share, and adopt best practices and replicable solutions.
Join a diverse group of stakeholders to identify shared challenges and share best practice experiences that can shape much needed policy actions to enhance sustainable urban forestry at the local, national, and regional levels.
Whether you are a policy maker, practitioner, academic or passionate community leader, UNECE invites you to register your interest to join the Informal Network of Experts for the opportunity to grow your network and identify opportunities for peer exchange and collaboration, including through regular meetings and joint activities through the network.
