A number of the SDGs directly apply to forests and the 1.6 billion people whose livelihoods depend on them, many of whom live in developing countries. Goal 15 includes the aim to sustainably manage forests, halt deforestation and restore degraded forests, and with forests having a major part to play in mitigating climate change, Goal 13, to take action on combatting climate change, is also highly relevant.

At the social and economic level, the sustainable development and management of forests can also have a positive impact on the people who depend on this important resource and so help towards achieving Goals 1 and 2 – to end poverty and hunger, as well as addressing Goal 5 – gender equality, and Goals 8, 9 and 12 relating to work, industry and responsible production and consumption.
