The 8th World Forest Week (WFW2022) will feature a series of inspiring events bringing FAO Member States, a range of partner organizations, leaders, science and youth to discuss a broad range of topics at the margins of the 26th Session of the Committee on Forestry (COFO26).


WFW2022 is structured around the priority areas outlined in the FAO Strategic Framework 2022-2031 with its vision of a sustainable and food secure world for all, in the context of the Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development. FAO seeks transformation to more efficient, inclusive, resilient and sustainable agrifood systems for better production, better nutrition, a better environment, and a better life, leaving no one behind.

WFW2022 will provide participants and partner organizations with a unique opportunity to exchange, connect, showcase best practices and actions on the ground, and to contribute from the forest community to the global international debate on forestry and environmental issues.
