GLOBAL OBJECTIVES ON FOREST

As enshrined in the Non-legally Binding Instruments on all
types of forest (Forest Instruments) adopted by the
United Nations General Assembly in 2007
   In 2006, at its sixth session, the United Nations Forum on Forests (UNFF) agreed on four shared Global Objectives on Forests, providing clear guidance on the future work of the international arrangement on forests. The four Global Objectives seek to:
  • GLOBAL OBJECTIVE 1 - Reverse the loss of forest cover worldwide through Sustainable Forest Management, including protection, restoration, afforestation and reforestation, and increase efforts to prevent forest degradation.

  • GLOBAL OBJECTIVE 2 - Enhance forest-based economic, social and environmental benefits, including by improving the livelihoods of forest-dependent people.

  • GLOBAL OBJECTIVE 3 - Increase significantly area of sustainably managed forests, protected forests worldwide and other areas of sustainably managed forests as well as the proportion of forest products from sustainably managed forests.

  • GLOBAL OBJECTIVE 4 - Reverse the decline in official development assistance for sustainable forest management and mobilize significantly increased, new, and addicitional financial resources from all sources for the implementation of sustainable forest management. read more

FOREST INSTRUMENT:
A FRAMEWORK FOR IMPLEMENTING SUSTAINABLE FOREST MANAGEMENT
   As a framework for implementing sustainable forest management, the Forest Instrument includes a set of 25 National Policies and Measures, which are designed to bring the country closer to the goal of achieving sustainably managed forest ecosystems all over the archipelago.

   Although on voluntary basis, each member state of UNFF is responsible for the sustainable management of its forests and enforcement of its forest-related laws.

   Importantly, in addition to the Government’s forest service units, all relevant stakeholders including local government units (LGU), local and indigenous communities, and non-governmental, civil society, academe, and media organizations will be involved through transparent, participatory constructive engagements, dialogues, and consultations. read more
