    No results found.

    This is the twenty-third issue of the above publication, a comprehensive and detailed compilation of statistics on farming, livestock, fishery, forestry and nutrition in Asia-Pacific countries for the decade 1995-2005. Statistics are listed separately for developing countries (including transition economies) and developed countries in the region. The publication uses mostly FAO statistics based on information provided by member countries. Also included is a section on country profiles. The publi cation provides a handy comparison of changes over the past decade in the use of agricultural land and farm inputs, production of farm and horticulture crops, livestock, fisheries, forestry and agricultural trade in countries of the Asia-Pacific region, where approximately 52 percent of the total population were engaged in farming and related activities.

    Asia-Pacific forestry: outlook and realities five years since APFSOS
    Asia-Pacific Forestry Sector Outlook Study II
    2006
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    The initial Asia-Pacific Forestry Sector Outlook Study (APFSOS) drew together the myriad forestry dimensions to provide a coherent description and analysis of the situation and prospects for forestry in the region. The study resulted in 50 working papers on a variety of forestry themes. The formal aspects of the study culminated in a comprehensive main report, published in November 1998. APFSOS provided an important roadmap for forestry sector development in the Asia-Pacific region to 2010, w hich is still being used to guide policy makers in the region today. Much of the first APFSOS is now becoming outdated and, since 1998, several changes have taken place within and outside the forestry sector. FAO is now committed to conducting a second APFSOS: “Asia-Pacific Forestry Towards 2020”. The work will focus on existing and emerging issues of importance to forestry in the region. Paths of future developments will also be constructed on the basis of a range of scenarios. This paper provides a retrospective of changes since 1998 in comparison with forecasts made in 1998 and also summarises major developments that were not envisaged at the time. On this basis, areas to be included under the second APFSOS are suggested and lessons are drawn to guide the outlook process.
