The UN Forum on Forests (UNFF) will hold the first meeting of the Open-ended Intergovernmental Ad Hoc Expert Group (AHEG1) on Paragraph 44 of UN Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) Resolution E/CN.18/2015/L.2 ‘International Arrangement on Forests Beyond 2015’ from 25-27 April 2016 at United Nations Headquarters in New York.

AHEG1 is charged with developing proposals on matters referred to in paragraph 44 of the ECOSOC Resolution, namely: replacement of the reference to the Millennium Development Goals in the non-legally binding instrument on all types of forests with an appropriate reference to the Sustainable Development Goals and targets; and the UNFF Strategic Plan for the period 2017-2030 and the quadrennial programme of work for the period 2017-2020.

The AHEG is to finish its work at a second meeting in late 2016 and submit its proposals for consideration by the working group of the Forum.
