UNFF10
The tenth session of the UN Forum on Forests continued on Wednesday, 17 April. In the morning, Working Group (WG) I convened for the second reading of the revised draft text. It then adjourned for further consultations by negotiating blocs and resumed during lunch. Under WGII, early morning informal consultations convened on the Ad Hoc Expert Group (AHEG). The WG met for an update on these informal consultations, which continued thereafter.

In the afternoon, WGI continued the second reading of the revised draft text, while negotiating blocs continued informal consultations on the text at the same time. WGII commenced the second reading of the revised draft text, while a drafting group addressed the issue of the 2015 review of the IAF. Negotiations in both WGs continued late into the evening.

Side events took place during the lunch period on advances in Amazon cooperation on deforestation monitoring and the launch of a new initiative - Turkey's Forests for the Future We Want.
