Harnessing forests for the Sustainable Development Goals: Building synergies and mitigating trade-offs

Export citation

This brief builds on information produced by the In-ternational Union of Forest Research Organizations’ Special Project World Forests, Society and Environ-ment (IUFRO WFSE). It is meant to draw attention to the opportunities to harness synergies and mitigate trade-offs between forests and other land sectors in the context of national level development efforts and policy making in different sectors. Recognizing the potential for synergies and conflicts among the targets from the point of view of forest-related de-velopment and livelihoods is the first step towards achieving synergistic implementation of the targets, while mitigating trade-offs and building cross-sec-toral coordination.
