UN forum calls for sustainable forest management

The United Nations Forum on Forests has called on governments around the world to improve sustainable forest management.

The forum recommended a range of actions that should be taken, from data collection to addressing the causes of deforestation.

As its latest session finished on Friday night, the forum also decided to consider setting up a global forest fund.
