    The first-ever Asia-Pacific Forestry Week, convened in Hanoi, Viet Nam from 21 to 26 April 2008, was a landmark event bringing together a diverse cross-section of voices and stakeholders from the Asia-Pacific forestry sector. Comprising a large number of events housed under the same roof, the week succeeded in fostering synergies, enthusiasm and an overall spirit of cooperation. The Week was intended to speak to the need for greater coherence among the various forestry-related issues and actions , and serve as a shared forum through which some of the most pressing challenges of our generation might be addressed. The Hanoi-hosted Week was a virtual kaleidoscope of diverse issues – woven together by a common theme: the interactions between forests and people of the region. This resulting publication is a testimony to the varied voices, perspectives and insights that emerged over the week.

    Report of the Asia-Pacific Forestry Commission (APFC) and the Fourth Asia-Pacific Forestry Week (APFW 2019) 2019
    The Twenty-eighth session of the Asia-Pacific Forestry Commission (APFC) was held from 17 to 21 June 2019 in Incheon, Republic of Korea. The main theme of the session was “Forests for peace and well-being”. It was attended by approximately 200 participants, including delegates from four United Nations (UN) organizations, 22 member countries and 22 regional and international intergovernmental and non-governmental organizations. The Commission was convened as the core event of the Asia-Pacific Forestry Week 2019, which attracted more than 2000 participants and included 100 events organized by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and partner organizations. APFC recognized the important contributions forests can make to peace-building and people’s well-being. It highlighted the need for governments, key stakeholders and FAO to continue to advance work in a number of areas, including regional and national capacity-building on conflict management and dispute resolution; forest and landscape restoration; community forests, trade and markets; impacts of technological advances on forests and forestry; biodiversity; supporting the implementation of key recommendations coming from the Third Asia-Pacific Forest Sector Outlook Study (APFSOS III); and forests and climate change. The outcomes of the deliberation are summarized in this information note.

    Asia-Pacific Forestry Week: Growing our Future!

    APFW 2016, co-hosted by the Department of Environment and Natural Resources of the Philippines and the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, followed the success of the two previous Forestry Weeks. Drawing from the previous experiences, the third forestry week was the biggest forestry week yet, attended by around 1300 participants from governments, non-government organizations, research institutions, regional and international networks, UN agencies, universities and colleges. The global acceptance of the milestone agreements in 2015 – adoption of the Sustainable Development Goals and COP21 agreement - resulted in an idea for the theme “Growing Our Future”, which reflects the need for society to integrate forestry into the wider context of sustainable development. The theme provided an opportunity for diverse decision makers and stakeholders to discuss, exchange ideas and develop a plan of how to implement these global agreements on a local scale in forestry.
