Welcome Message from the Executive Director

It is my pleasure to take office as the Executive Director of AFoCO. Almost a decade has passed since I last worked with the team during the organization’s initial phase as the ASEAN-Korea Forest Cooperation. With great delight, I am honored and humbled to join the organization again. As Executive Director of AFoCO, I will lead the team to work hand-in-hand with our member countries to address global and national forest-related issues including dealing with the impacts of climate change, rehabilitating degraded forests, securing sustainable livelihoods for forest-dependent communities, and combating desertification.
