Forest Day 6

By its sixth year, Forest Day had become one of the most influential global events on forests. It acted as a platform for anyone interested in forests and climate change to gather to ensure that forests were high on the agenda of global and national climate strategies, and that those strategies were informed by the most up-to-date knowledge and experience.

Under the banner of "Living Landscapes", which referred to the interconnections between forests and agriculture and their impacts on people and society, Forest Day 6 kicked off the first of two popular conferences on the sidelines of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change's (UNFCCC) annual Conference of the Parties in 2012. Forest Day 6 was followed by Agriculture, Landscapes and Livelihoods Day 5 on December 3 at the same venue.

Forest Day 6 sought to inform UNFCCC's global agenda and forest stakeholders on ways to move forward with REDD+ agreements reached at COP17 in Durban, to produce social and environmental benefits, good governance, long-term financing and the integration of forests into adaptation strategies on the ground. REDD+ stands for Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and forest Degradation, as well as the conservation and sustainable management of forests, and the enhancement of forest carbon stocks.
