European Forest Week Las2017 The joint 75th session of the ECE Committee on Forests and the Forest Industry (COFFI) and 39th session of the FAO European Forestry Commission (EFC) will be held from 9-12 October 2017 in Warsaw, Poland. The event is called Las2017, with “las” meaning forest in Polish.

The meeting will address, among other things: global forest policy matters; Forest Resources Assessment 2020 (FRA2020) – enhanced and streamlined international reporting; System for the Evaluation of Management of Forests (SEMAFOR); Forest and Landscape Restoration Mechanism work under climate change conditions in the region; and contributions of FAO’s work in forestry to the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals within the scope of FAO Regional Initiatives.

In conjunction with Las2017, the 4th European Forest Week will be celebrated throughout Europe, under the theme of “Forests, our common good.” National and local activities, held simultaneously in participating countries, will involve contests, exhibitions, talks and videos, and will bring together a variety of stakeholders from the forest and non-forest sectors.
