Dear reader,
Welcome to a new edition of Infosylva. It opens with a
recent FAO publication about forests, written for young
people. The book aims to raise youngsters' awareness about
this extraordinarily rich environment - vital for life on our
planet - and encourage their participation and involvement
in preserving it and in learning how to use its varied and
important resources in a sustainable way. (In English)
In Mexico City, FAO, in collaboration with the Mexican
National Forestry Commission (CONAFOR), organized an
International Seminar on Sustainable Forestry Management
to boost productivity in sustainably managed forests in Latin
America. (In Spanish)
Also in the area of sustainable forest management (SFM),
Germany has financed an ambitious global project to be
carried out by FAO, with the aim of developing criteria and
indicators for SFM, in particular on socioeconomic and
governance aspects. The purpose is to integrate them into
planning, decision-making, monitoring and reporting in
forest management projects and practices. (In English)
In its efforts to combat climate warming, France intends to
step up its support to agroecology, to help produce quality
food in a more environmentally friendly way. Climate-smart
agriculture and other techniques such as agroforestry can
contribute to the intensive production required to feed a
growing world population by increasing food quality at the


same time. (In French)
The Ghana Forestry Commission is organizing a REDD+
roadshow through those regions of the country where the
effects of deforestation and climate change are most
apparent, to encourage Ghanaians to take on a more
sustainable approach to the use of their natural resources.

New forestry publications with FAO collaboration

Forests under pressure Local responses to global issues
This book is the result of a collaborative work of 144 scientist and experts who acted as authors in
different capacities and over 60 reviewers. Building on 27 case studies from different parts of the world


the book focuses on conditions that foster or hinder progress towards sustainable forest management
(SFM) and forest-related development. The case studies use a common analytical framework of
prerequisite conditions to examine the implementation of SFM.

Synergistic policies and measures are the key to advancing sustainable forest management and
forest-based development Brief
This brief presents the main findings of the book above and its recommendations for the way forward in
a concise format.

Strengthening Criteria & Indicators for sustainable forest management and their use in policy and
practice (SCI-SFM) Info leaflet
In recognition of the potential of C&I to strengthen SFM in both policy and practice, the Government of
Germany is funding a 2-year project. FAO will implement the project in partnership with key regional C&I
processes and other partners.

The Potential Economic Values of the Multiple Benefits from REDD+ in Panama: A Synthesis of Existing
Valuation Studies
Deforestation and forest degradation is still ongoing in many areas of Panama. An international
mechanism to transfer financial incentives to countries for reducing emissions from deforestation and
forest degradation and related activities (REDD+) provides a promising opportunity to stabilize and even
increase forest cover. Under the UN-REDD Programme, Panama is currently preparing REDD+
implementation to decrease deforestation and forest degradation.

The youth guide to forests
This fact-filled Guide explores forests from the equator to the frozen poles, the depths of the rainforest
to the mountain forests at high altitudes. It also demonstrates the many benefits that forests provide us
with, discusses the negative impacts that humans unfortunately have on forests and explains how good
management can help protect and conserve forests and forest biodiversity. At the end of the Guide,
inspiring examples of youth-led initiatives are provided, and an easy-to-follow action plan aims to help
youngsters develop their own forest conservation activities and projects.
