Theme: “Forests and Wildlife: Africa’s diversity for shared prosperity and security”
The 22nd Session of the African Forestry and Wildlife Commission (AFWC22) and the 6th African Forestry and Wildlife Week (AFWW6) will be held in Mpumalanga, South Africa.
The AFWC is one of six regional forestry commissions established by the UN’s Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO). The commission, which meets every two years, advises on forest and wildlife management policy and reviews and coordinates its implementation at the regional level; exchanges information and advises on suitable practices and action in regard to technical problems.
The AFWW6 will be held simultaneously with the Commission Session to showcase progress and advancement in African forestry and wildlife sectors. It will also enable networking, collaboration and exchange of experience and knowledge among policymakers, technicians, practitioners, academia, civil society and development partners from different countries. The Week will include several exhibitions, multisectoral dialogues, and side events.
