    Policy brief
    Asia-Pacific roadmap for primary forest conservation

    Primary forests and natural landscapes in Asia and the Pacific are under increasing pressures and threats driven by population growth, migrations and conflicts, globalization and economic growth, urbanization, mining and infrastructure development, agriculture and planted forest expansion, forest fires, invasive species and disease outbreaks. Many of these threats are increasingly exacerbated by climate change. Policy coherence across sectors and scales and context-specific action plans, at fine scale of management, are needed to address these threats. This policy brief informs the process and key steps by which decision-makers and actors can evaluate the state of primary forests in the region, identify priority areas and priority actions for primary forest conservation, assess the threats they face, and explore possible ways to address them.

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

    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.
