39th issue of Forest Cover, the newsletter of the Global Forest Coalition
We present the most recent version of the Global Forest Coalition’s newsletter in intergovernmental forest-related policy processes: Forest Cover no.39. This issue includes an outlook for the upcoming 17th Conference of the Parties of the Framework Convention on Climate Change, and a report of the last preparatory negotiation session for this conference, which took place in Panama in October. It also includes a report on a national workshop on the drivers of forest loss in Tanzania, and an update on the latest state of EU decision-making, or rather the lack thereof, regarding agrofuels and their indirect impacts on forests and other ecosystems.
This issue also includes two reports related to the upcoming ‘Rio+20’ UN Conference on Sustainable Development, from an Indigenous and a women’s perspective.
