We present the most recent version of the Global Forest Coalition’s newsletter in intergovernmental forest-related policy processes: Forest Cover no.40. This issue includes articles referring to the past UNFCCC-COP17 in Durban, South Africa addressing topics such as the future of REDD, the new alliance against REDD and (Fake) Forest Day . It also includes a report on the Thematic Social Forum on Rio+20 as well as the Rio+20 Second Round of Informal-Informal negotiations and Third Intersessional Meeting of UNCSD in New York, last March.

You will also find a report on the Global Dialogue Seminar on Scaling Up Finance for Biodiversity carried out in March in Quito, Ecuador, and a critical outlook on the Sustainable Energy for All Initiative (SEFA) proposed during the last World Future Energy Summit in Abu Dhabi.

And for closing this issue, a report on the Twelfth Special Session of the UNEP Governing Council/Global Ministerial Environment Forum organized  from 20-22 February 2012 at UNEP’s headquarters in Nairobi, Kenya where  the concept ‘green economy’ was being discussed.
