XV World Forestry Congress

Building a Green, Healthy and Resilient Future with Forests

02 - 06 May 2022, Coex, Seoul, Republic of Korea

Youth proposals for innovative technologies in the Asia-Pacific forestry sector

Young people have shown their capacity to generate and spearhead trans-national mobilization to address environmental challenges such as climate change, and advance sustainable development. They can be instrumental in shaping a sustainable future, including by taking leadership roles and generating momentum through collaboration and social media; by transforming rigid institutions from within; and by participating in the uptake and upscale of innovative technologies in the forest sector. That’s why FAO and FTA, through an open call for contributions, invited students and young professionals to contribute actively to the roadmap being developed on the use of innovative technologies in forestry and forest management in the Asia-Pacific region, with key recommendations (policy and concrete actions) for their application in sustainable forest management. This exercise resulted in a FAO/FTA co-publication, which gathers and shares the best youth contributions to the roadmap.
