Second UN Forum on Forests Ad-Hoc Expert Group Meeting (AHEG2) on the International Arrangement on Forests (IAF)

New York
12 - 16 January, 2015

The second UN Forum on Forests Ad-Hoc Expert Group Meeting (AHEG2) on the International Arrangement on Forests (IAF) is scheduled to take place at UN Headquarters from 12 to 16 January.

The meeting will discuss actions and options related to key components of the International Arrangement beyond 2015. These components include the Forest Instrument, Financing of Sustainable Forest Management, the UNFF and its Secretariat, the Collaborative Partnership on Forests, Major Groups and Regional Entities. The outcome of these discussions will be reflected in the AHEG2 Co-Chairsĺ summary, which will be submitted for consideration by the Forum at UNFF11 in May 2015.

In April 2013, the tenth session of the UN Forum on Forests established the open-ended intergovernmental ad hoc expert group (AHEG) on the IAF as part of the intersessional preparatory activities for the review of the IAF. The AHEG is mandated to review the performance and effectiveness of the IAF, based on inputs provided by various stakeholders, as well as the outcome of the work of the independent assessment of the IAF. Based on this review, the AHEG will put forth a set of recommendations to UNFF11 on the strategic direction on the function and institutional arrangements of the IAF for the period beyond 2015.
