Within the framework of modern governance, accountability means acknowledging responsibility for delivery. The UN system, as a global public service, needs to set an example by providing information to its member countries, governing bodies, partners and other stakeholders on its major achievements and resources in an easy-to-read format. Yet many of the activities carried out by the UN system in general, and FAO in particular, are not well known. For this reason, FAO Forestry decided in early 2010 to create an attractive biennial publication that would showcase its main achievements and corresponding resources. This publication informs discussions during plenary sessions of the Committee on Forestry (COFO) when reporting on activities, and is also a resource for new staff, partners and the media to better understand FAO’s Forestry programme. During the past biennium, through its dense network of regional, subregional and country offices and from its headquarters in Rome, Italy, FAO has implemented projects that amount to a total of US$81.5 million, and regular programme normative activities corresponding to approximately US$40 million. The bulk of the project budget is related to Global Environment Facility and UN-REDD projects.
