The Forest Sector in the Green Economy sums up key elements and conclusions of the presentations and discussions that took place during the Policy Forum “The Forest Sector in the Green economy” held on 15 October 2009 during the UNECE Timber Committee’s annual session. This Geneva Timber and Forest Discussion Paper captures the essence of the debates with summaries and references from all available presentations.




I would like to express, on behalf of the UNECE/FAO Timber Section, my sincere appreciation to Ms. Eve Charles and Ms. Marion Briens for the main organization of the Policy Forum: “Forest sector in a green economy” and for the preparation of the Forum background paper. I also wish to thank Mr. Ed Pepke, Acting Chief, Timber Section, for his in-depth review of this Discussion Paper.
