Forests in Focus: Results from the Forest Sector Development Cooperation
The publication presents the achievements of Finnish development cooperation in the forest sector, with six forest programmes or projects implemented mainly in Africa, Asia and South America in the 2010s as examples.
Also included is a World Bank fund programme supported by Finland, extended to a total of 47 countries. Besides the results, lessons learned through the cooperation are also presented.
Finland has engaged in forest sector cooperation since the 1980s. Because of climate change, forests are assuming an increasingly important role. In 2016 Finland supports development cooperation in the forest sector by more than EUR 20 million.
