The 2020 NYDF Progress Assessment focuses on two complementary, crucial goals for achieving sustainable development:
Embrace alternative development pathways that reduce over-exploitation, inefficient production, and excessive consumption of resources.
Align macroeconomic and strategic planning with forest goals
Apply the ‘mitigation hierarchy’ to effectively minimize forest impacts from infrastructure projects and extractive industries
Apply the ‘PRIME framework’ to promote sustainable livelihoods and address deforestation
