The World Forestry Congress, hosted by FAO and held every six years, is the largest and most influential forest sector gathering to share worldwide forest-related and environmental problems, like climate change, biodiversity loss and desertification, and devise solutions through forests.

The Seoul Forest Declaration, prepared by the host country, the Republic of Korea, was announced among the major outcomes. The Declaration highlighted that future sustainable forest management responsibilities should be integrated among various agencies and stakeholders. Additionally, the need to build new partnerships, like AFFIRM Mechanism, SAFE initiative, and REDD+, and establish financing for sustainable forest management was announced.

In the Ministerial Forum on Sustainable Wood, the 'Ministerial Call on Sustainable Wood' was announced. The declaration says solutions for using wood sustainably should be built into sustainable forest management, with each country agreeing to contribute to achieving NDCs (nationally determined contributions) by 2030.

The XV World Forestry Congress held in Korea marked the largest attendance in the WFC's history. The KFS hopes to take the lead in making a sustainable green future that was discussed in the congress and in building close partnerships with forest officials around the world.
