The 27th Session of the Committee on Forestry (COFO) will be held on 22-26 July 2024 at FAO headquarters, Rome, Italy in a hybrid format. The biennial sessions of COFO bring together high-level representatives, heads of forest services, government officials and partner organizations to identify emerging policy and technical guidance, seek solutions, and advise on future strategy and action.

COFO 27 will be held in conjunction with the 9th World Forest Week (WFW 2024) under the theme “Accelerating Forest Solutions through Innovation.'' 

The Week will feature a series of events and exhibitions bringing FAO Members, partner organizations, including youth and members of the Collaborative Partnership on Forests, together to discuss a broad range of topics related to FAO mandate and aligned with priority topics to be discussed by the 27th Session of the Committee on Forestry.   

A highlight of COFO 27 will be the release of FAO’s flagship publication The State of the World’s Forests 2024 which will provide an in-depth analysis of forest-sector innovations towards a more sustainable future. The week will also feature discussion on scaling up agroforestry, the FAO Forestry Roadmap - From Vision to Action 2024-2031, on bioeconomy, climate change, ecosystem restoration, urban agrifood systems, integrated fire management, and agriculture and forestry linkages.
