    Conflicts over forest resources limit the success of sustainable forest management initiatives such as forest and landscape restoration (FLR) efforts. They also impede inclusive and sustainable development that countries aspire for. Building sufficient human resources capable of effectively managing conflict by responding early and addressing the causes to turn conflicts into opportunities for positive change is therefore a priority. The Asia-Pacific Forestry Commission and the third Asia Pacific Sector Outlook Study have highlighted the need to support and invest in regional and national capacity building on conflict resolution in forestry. In response to this, this training aims to strengthen the capacity of government officers and other key actors to address forest conflicts and provide the opportunity for exchanges and learning about experiences and best practices regarding conflict management in the region. This training is implemented by FAO in collaboration with Consensus Building Institute (CBI) and the Regional Community Forestry Training Center for Asia and the Pacific (RECOFTC). CBI are conflict experts who have more than 28 years of experience in facilitation, mediation, capacity building, citizen engagement, and organizational strategy and development to solve complex social, environmental, and economic challenges. RECOFTC strives for a future where people live equitably and sustainably in and beside healthy, resilient forests. It is the only non-profit of its kind in the Asia-Pacific region and the world dedicated to community forestry. RECOFTC's entry point to sustainable and climate change solutions is community forestry. It builds capacities of communities, governments, civil society organizations and companies so local communities can sustainably manage and benefit from their forests.

    Global momentum for forest and landscape restoration (FLR) is accelerating to achieve the SDGs, Global Forest Goals, the Bonn Challenge, and aspirations of the UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration. In the Asia Pacific region, FAO member countries have endorsed the Regional Strategy and Action Plan for FLR, which emphasizes the importance of collaboration and coordination for FLR, including promoting private sector participation and communitylevel actions to meet the demands for forest products and services. The Asia-Pacific region is experiencing a growing demand for forest products and services due to transitions in the region’s forests, economies and societies. Recognizing this trend, the third Asia-Pacific Forest Sector Outlook Study highlights the urgent need for more sustainable and inclusive wood value chains. The Asia-Pacific Regional Conference in 2022 invited FAO to strengthen work on sustainable forestry, in particular the sustainable wood production and consumption. In this context, this regional dialogue is organized on the APFC30 DIALOGUE DAY with the support of the Australian National University to discuss the opportunities, constraints, and ways forward for integrating sustainable wood supply with FLR. A background paper on this theme has been prepared to facilitate a focussed discussion.
