The Secretariat of the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) and IUCN have published a Good Practice Guide on Sustainable Forest Management: Biodiversity and Livelihoods

 

IUCN and the CBD Secretariat hope that the guide will support governments, development agencies, businesses, and non-governmental organizations in their efforts to ensure that biodiversity conservation and poverty reduction proceed concurrently, also in the context of reducing emissions from deforestation and forest degradation (REDD). The guide includes references to and examples from relevant work by members of the Collaborative Partnership on Forests (CPF), for example the ITTO/IUCN guidelines for the conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity in tropical timber production forests. The guide, which is part of a new CBD series on biodiversity and development, also contains a presentation template for training purposes.

 

Hard copies of the guide can be ordered free of charge from the CBD Secretariat: This email address is being protected from spambots.

Background

 The Secretariat of the Convention on Biological Diversity (SCBD), based in Montreal, Canada, was established to support the goals of the Convention. Its primary functions are to organize meetings, prepare reports, assist member governments in the implementation of the various programmes of work, coordinate with other international organizations and collect and disseminate information.
