The CFA is a partner in a new initiative, The Queen's Commonwealth Canopy,  in which Commonwealth citizens are leading the world in efforts to protect the forest – forest that their communities and the planet as a whole depend on.  

The Queen’s Commonwealth Canopy will show that, irrespective of geography, economy, culture or tenure, solutions exist to the threats facing these critical ecosystems.   For more information visit the QCC website.


Professor John Innes, CFA President 

“The objective of the CFA is to promote the conservation and sustainable management of the world's forests and the contributions they make to peoples’ livelihoods…..”

“A particularly important aspect of the CFA is the links that are being forged between forestry professionals and civil society”.
