The State of the World’s Forests 2018: Forests Pathways to Sustainable Development

The 2018 edition of The State of the World’s Forests aims to do just that, presenting new information to help recognize these interlinkages and enhance our understanding of how policies on forests and trees go beyond SDG15, Life on Land, to contribute to achieving many other goals and targets of the 2030 Agenda. The State of the World’s Forests 2018 provides detailed analysis aimed at capturing the contribution of forests and trees to 28 targets relating to ten SDGs.
