29.10.2021. On Tuesday 9 November 2021, INTERHOLCO will hold a side event at the UN Conference of Parties on Climate Change (COP26) which takes place in Glasgow from 31.10.2021 to 12.11.2021. The objective of the event is to show-case best in class public-private-partnership in tropical forestry in the Republic of Congo.
The event will explore Congo's strategic vision and collaboration with the private sector, particularly FSC-certified forestry companies, in implementing the protection of its forests through responsibly produced wood products, i.e. natural habitats and ecosystems on which our climate, air, water, health and life on this planet depend, thereby contributing directly to Nature (COP26 priority area 4), also seeking to mobilise Expertise and Funding (priority area 5) to support climate change Adaptation and Resilience (priority area 1).
