FSC General Assembly 2017 – Briefing Note

The Forest Stewardship Council (FSCĀ®) General Assembly convened in October 2017 in Vancouver, Canada for a week of strategic planning, debate, and voting, with over 700 delegates from more than 80 countries participating to shape the future of responsible forest management.

This briefing note provides an update on some of the key discussion areas and outcomes from the FSC General Assembly (FSC GA), focusing on issue areas that New Forests believes may present either challenges or opportunities for forestry investment in the Asia-Pacific region and United States.
