Sustainable Development Goals and forests: Integrating perspectives, priorities and experience from Africa
The UN’s Open Working Group (OWG) proposed draft sustainable development goals (SDGs) in July 2014.
It is the purpose of this report to integrate the perspectives, priorities and experiences from Africa in helping to ensure that the goals gain the right contribution from forests while optimally fostering their sustainability. The report assesses the OWG zero draft and proposes introducing an approach which, if adopted, could ensure that the goals gain the right contribution from forests while optimally fostering their sustainability.
IIED is working to help install forest-related targets and indicators into the post-2015 development framework, contributing towards notional goal areas on poverty reduction and equality, economic growth and employment, food security, water and energy, climate change, ecosystems and biodiversity.
