Forests in Asia are at risk of reduced capacity for climate change mitigation, limited provision of ecosystem services and reduced economic growth potential without proactive measures to put in place sustainable forest management practices.

To address such issues and challenges, AFoCO has been engaging directly with member countries’ forest departments to undertake action-oriented forest programs and projects targeted at restoring degraded forests and lands, strengthening the resilience of forest ecosystems and forest-dependent people against changing climates and related natural disasters, and securing the livelihoods of rural forest communities. AFoCO also contantly explores critical issues such as biodiversity conservation, carbon finance, and wildlife crime.
