    The sixth edition of this biennial publication showcases the breadth of work and main achievements and partnerships of FAO Forestry in implementing the FAO Strategic Objectives as well as its linkages to the SDGs, with descriptive information on project and programme delivery and funding resources. It is also intended to serve as a reference for delegates attending the 25th Session of the Committee on Forestry during discussions on programme implementation as well as a resource for new staff, partners and the media to help them better understand FAO's forestry programme and its linkages with other sectors, partners and international processes. Approximately 30 programme activities are documented with a selection of related photographs, with a foreword by the Assistant Director-General of Forestry.

    Within the framework of modern governance, accountability means acknowledging responsibility for delivery. The UN system, as a global public service, needs to set an example by providing information to its member countries, governing bodies, partners and other stakeholders on its major achievements and resources in an easy-to-read format. Yet many of the activities carried out by the UN system in general, and FAO in particular, are not well known. For this reason, FAO Forestry decided in early 2010 to create an attractive biennial publication that would showcase its main achievements and corresponding resources. This publication informs discussions during plenary sessions of the Committee on Forestry (COFO) when reporting on activities, and is also a resource for new staff, partners and the media to better understand FAO’s Forestry programme. During the past biennium, through its dense network of regional, subregional and country offices and from its headquarters in Rome, Italy, FAO h as implemented projects that amount to a total of US$81.5 million, and regular programme normative activities corresponding to approximately US$40 million. The bulk of the project budget is related to Global Environment Facility and UN-REDD projects.

    Approximately one-third of the world’s population depend on forests for their livelihoods. Forest-dependent people require social protection because they are often poor, geographically, politically and socially marginalized, and vulnerable to a variety of risks and shocks. Forestry and social protection programmes and policies share similar objectives of reducing vulnerability of forest-dependent people, enhancing economic inclusion and promoting sustainable development. Therefore, coherence, should be sought to ensure complementarity in objectives and coverage. FAO aims to promote linkages between social protection and agriculture, food security, nutrition, natural resource management, decent rural employment and resilience building. This document presents a guiding framework to assist mainly governments, development organizations and civil society organizations (CSOs) in attaining coherence between social protection and forest policies to improve the well-being of forest-dependent people. The framework guides the provision of knowledge and evidence on the vulnerabilities of forest-dependent people and analyses gaps in the provision of social protection to forest-dependent people; frames the rationale for promoting the coherence between forestry and social protection; and identifies the enabling environment and options to coherently design and implement forestry and social protection at the programme and operational levels.
