UN Food and Agriculture Organization Committee on Forestry – COFO

The Committee on Forestry (COFO) is the highest forestry statutory body under the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO). The biennial sessions of COFO bring together heads of forest services and other senior government officials to identify emerging policy and technical issues, to seek solutions and to advise the FAO and others on appropriate action. This is achieved through: periodic reviews of international forestry problems and appraisal of these problems. COFO also reviews the FAO forestry work programmes and their implementation, and provides advice to the FAO Director-General on future work programmes. COFO held its first session in 1972 and meets every two years at FAO headquarters in Rome.
