The emergence of and continuing significance of issues related to LULUCF has stimulated cooperation with many
organizations and institutions with forestry and agriculture experiences.
The United Nations Forum on Forests (UNFF). The UNFF
is an intergovernmental process with the objective of promoting the management, conservation and sustainable
development of all types of forests. It succeeded a five-year period (1995-2000) of forest policy dialogue
facilitated by the Intergovernmental Panel on Forests (IPF) and the Intergovernmental Forum on Forests (IFF).
The Food and Agriculture Organization of the
United Nations (FAO). For example, the forestry department of FAO has considerable experience in building
capacity in developing countries and in assessing the global status of forests. Its work includes the
development of definitions and the publication of the Global Forest Resources Assessment as a contribution to
knowledge on the state of the world’s forests.
The Collaborative Partnership on Forests (CPF). The CPF is an informal body intended to foster
cooperation and coordination among international organizations working on forest issues. Among its
initiatives, the CPF has created a task force on streamlining reporting, to explore ways to harmonize and improve reporting on
forest issues under different international processes, including the UNFCCC.
