Forest governance - Progress since 2014

Published: January 31, 2022

Since 2015, the NYDF Assessment Partners have conducted an annual assessment of global progress toward the ten goals of the NYDF and its 2020 and 2030 targets. In this series of slide decks, we synthesize our findings from seven years of research and analysis across each of these ten goals to provide a baseline to assess 2030 forest targets made at COP26 and across other international declarations and taret-setting initiatives. Taken together, these goal summaries provide a holistic overview of the state of play and key remaining challenges in protecting, restoring, and sustainably managing forests.

The slide decks are categorized according to the following four forest themes:

  1. Setting and achieving overarching targets to end deforestation and restore degraded lands (Goals 1 & 5).
  2. Taking action to ensure sustainable production and development (Goals 2, 3, and 4)
  3. Shifting and sourcing new finance for forests (Goals 8 & 9)
  4. Strengthening forest governance and empowering Indigenous Peoples and local communities (Goal 10)

In this first installment, we work backwards and begin with theme 4, forest governance.
