    A comprehensive set of guidelines prepared by the Asia-Pacific Forestry Commission (APFC) to help countries in the region implement APFC’s landmark forest harvesting code. The Code of Practice for Forest Harvesting adopted by the APFC in 1998 will assist countries in making the best economic use of their forests while minimising the negative environmental and social impacts of harvesting. This publication provides crucial support to regional countries in identifying and training government polic y makers, planners, logging industry leaders and frontline forestry and forest industry staff for effective implementation of the code. It replaces a plethora of earlier national and regional training efforts that were piecemeal in approach and neglected key actors in forest harvesting.

    This paper presents the lessons learned from the Republic of Korea financed ASEAN-KOREA Environmental Cooperation Project (AKECOP) about two decades of experience in creative collaboration in research and human resource development in the restoration and sustainable management of degraded forest ecosystems in the ASEAN region. The Philippines and nine other participating ASEAN member states (AMS) have learned valuable lessons from the various innovative collaboration strategies employed by the Project. Participatory project management was adopted to ensure project relevance, quality, reliability and equitability and maximum impact. Research and development in-country and cross-cultural collaborative modes were tried and found to be effective strategies in enhancing research outputs and in facilitating research process learning experiences. Cross country exchange visits to locally successful restoration sites were found to be effective schemes for information exchange and technology transfer. And needs-oriented short training programs and graduate studies at the MSc and PhD level were effective strategies in building a pool of high- level expertise in forest restoration and SFM. However, the most valuable lesson from the Project's experience in creative collaboration is that SUCCESS in smaller collaborative initiatives such as AKECO P can inspire the creation of larger institutional partnerships such as Asian Forest Cooperation Organization (AFoCO). As a way forward, the participating AMS have arrived at a consensus that AKECOP should continue to serve as a platform for regional collaboration in SFM considering its notable part achievements. In line with the ASEAN "GREEN VISION" and its journey towards regional integration, AKECOP is envisaged to re-align its innovative strategies to the changing needs and challenges in the sustainable management of a healthy and productive forest ecosystems in a new world order threatened by the scourge of the COVID 19 crisis.
