The workshop on "Forests and Forest Ecosystems: Promoting
Synergy in the Implementation of the Three Rio Conventions" was
held from 5-7 April 2004, in the complex of Santa Maria in Gradi,
Viterbo, Italy. The workshop was organized by the Secretariats
of the UN Convention to Combat Desertification in those
Countries Experiencing Serious Drought and/or Desertification,
Particularly in Africa (CCD) and the UN Convention on Biological
Diversity (CBD), in cooperation with the Secretariat of the UN
Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). The goal of the
workshop, which included approximately 150 participants, was to
encourage the implementation of specific actions at the local
level on forests and forest ecosystems and their use and
conservation and further develop synergistic processes in this
sector in order to contribute to a more effective implementation
of the Rio conventions.
