The world’s leading forest certification organization, the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC), will hold its triennial global General Assembly in Vancouver, Canada from 8 to 13 October, 2017. Over 800 people from more than 80 countries, including leaders in global forestry, will be attending to focus on the challenges of global responsible forestry and how FSC certification can work to enhance it.

As FSC’s highest decision making body, the General Assembly sets the direction for the organization for the coming years, with several important areas of responsible forest management, conservation and sustainability on the agenda. These include, among others, the protection of High Conservation Value areas such as Intact Forest Landscapes, ensuring the rights and participation of Indigenous Peoples in forest development, and the future directions for forest restoration and conservation, all while permitting forests to continue to supply the vital products the world depends on for many purposes.
