    Asia-Pacific roadmap for innovative technologies in the forest sector 2022
    Also available in:

    The preservation of forests, sustainable forest management (SFM), forest landscape restoration (FLR) and the need to make the most of precious forest resources are priority issues in the policy and sustainable development agenda of the Asia-Pacific region. Innovation will be key in the coming decades to meet the increasing demand for wood and other forest products while halting and reversing deforestation, in line with the commitment taken at COP26 in Glasgow by the international community. However, uptake of innovative technologies has been slow and uneven in the Asia-Pacific region, and there remains a gap between political commitments and the investments – in education, capacity building, and infrastructure development – required to put them into practice. This technical report examines the potential and barriers to disseminating and deploying innovative technologies for SFM in the region and provides overarching recommendations and specific options for decision-makers. It delineates and informs the process by which decision-makers and actors can identify: the potential of innovative technologies to advance SFM; their potential impacts; constraints to technology uptake and scaling up, and how to overcome these constraints and facilitate adoption.

    FLR Days
    Advancing Forest and Landscape Restoration in Asia
    2022

    There is an accelerating global momentum in forest and landscape restoration (FLR), as part of achieving the SDGs, GFGs, Bonn Challenge and the UN’s Decade on Ecosystem Restoration. A regional strategy and action plan for FLR (hereafter the strategy) with six strategic priorities below has been developed and endorsed by the FAO member countries. 1. Support the development and implementation of national FLR plans and targets 2. Promote regional dialogue, learning, collaboration and coordinated action on FLR 3. Build recognition for and support the use of various technical, social and institutional approaches as appropriate for different landscapes and restoration objectives 4. Facilitate and support the mobilisation of financing for FLR 5. Encourage private sector participation and investment in FLR 6. Support community-level action on FLR Advancing these priorities necessitates working together closely and building on the opportunities for regional dialogues and learning from each other. The need for enhancing collaboration and coordination for gaining synergies with FLR activities of different partners is increasing. FAO RAP and partners are therefore shaping a FLR Portfolio and Programme and a consortium for effective FLR implementation, as outlined in the strategy. This builds on a regional Technical Cooperation Programme Project (TCP) covering seven countries: Bangladesh, Lao PDR, Myanmar, Nepal, Pakistan, PNG, and Timor-Leste (TCP/RAS/3803) that aims at four outputs: (i) Capacity building programmes on restoration implemented; (ii) National restoration action plans developed; (iii) Regional cooperation, platforms and partnerships improved; and (iv) A regional consortium for scaling-up restoration through a regional programme. FLR Days constitutes part of a series of events to harness the opportunities to address key barriers in advancing the regional strategy and catalyze a massive regional FLR movement for sustainable landscapes and livelihoods.

    Rural youth action plan – good practices
    2023
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    Young people are key agents of change, with enormous innovation potential. FAO recognizes that youth are already at the frontline to build more sustainable agrifood systems and are best placed to rejuvenate the sector, acquire the knowledge and skills needed to innovate, uptake new technologies, and spearhead the digital transformation. The Organization provides support to countries to develop more youth-inclusive policies, strategies, investments and programmes, in order to enhance the overall well-being of young women and men. This compendium of good practices brings together snapshots of selected FAO’s youth-specific projects, activities and products in support of the Rural Youth Action Plan (RYAP) first biennium of implementation (2021–2022).
