Summary

Nationwide reforestation and rehabilitation of degraded forests in the ROK were carried out through the 1st (1973-1978) and 2nd (1979-1987) National Forest Plans. The ROK case demonstrates that successful forest transition can be carried out in a relatively short period of time by a central authority, even with low levels of economic development.

Asian Forest Cooperation Organization (AFoCO) is a treaty-based intergovernmental organization aiming to strengthen forest cooperation by transforming proven technologies and policies into concrete actions in the context of sustainable forest management to address the impacts of climate change.

We are headquartered in Seoul, the Republic of Korea, with a subsidiary body, the AFoCO Regional Education and Training Center (RETC), located in Yangon region, Myanmar.
