    Global momentum for forest and landscape restoration (FLR) is accelerating to achieve the SDGs, Global Forest Goals, the Bonn Challenge, and aspirations of the UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration. In the Asia Pacific region, FAO member countries have endorsed the Regional Strategy and Action Plan for FLR, which emphasizes the importance of collaboration and coordination for FLR, including promoting private sector participation and communitylevel actions to meet the demands for forest products and services. The Asia-Pacific region is experiencing a growing demand for forest products and services due to transitions in the region’s forests, economies and societies. Recognizing this trend, the third Asia-Pacific Forest Sector Outlook Study highlights the urgent need for more sustainable and inclusive wood value chains. The Asia-Pacific Regional Conference in 2022 invited FAO to strengthen work on sustainable forestry, in particular the sustainable wood production and consumption. In this context, this regional dialogue is organized on the APFC30 DIALOGUE DAY with the support of the Australian National University to discuss the opportunities, constraints, and ways forward for integrating sustainable wood supply with FLR. A background paper on this theme has been prepared to facilitate a focussed discussion.

    The world is experiencing a number of complex and sometimes interrelated transitions, including moving toward new geopolitical and economic balances, toward more urbanized societies, toward unprecedented technological change and toward a lower carbon and more sustainable future. At the same time, the world is experiencing more frequent and more severe climate-related disasters as well as demands for social equity across many spheres – between rich and poor, between those who have benefited from globalization and those who have not, and across genders and among generations. These demands are being expressed with increasing intensity and are reflected in new political realities. The transitions have created a markedly different world compared to the turn of the millennium and even since the completion of the Asia-Pacific Forest Sector Outlook Study in 2010; thus the landscape that forestry operates in is both new and rapidly evolving. Meeting the challenge of managing forests and forestr y through these transitions and the risks they entail – including ensuring that forestry proactively contributes to shaping change – will require sound strategic thinking, wise investment and broad cooperation, among stakeholders and at international levels.
