Asian Forest Cooperation Organization (AFoCO) and International Tropical Timber Organization (ITTO) have been jointly organizing capacity-building workshops on Forest Landscape Restoration (FLR) in collaboration with partner organizations since 2021. The workshops are targeted at government officials and forestry experts from the Asia-Pacific Region to improve their understanding of the FLR. At its first workshop in 2021, critical FLR principles and guidelines were introduced, and the participating countries recommended ‘Preparing good proposals to Finance FLR projects’ and ‘Successful FLR efforts in the Region’ for the next year’s capacity-building workshop topics.

Emphasizing the benefits of implementing FLR, the second AFoCO-ITTO Capacity Development Workshop on FLR in the Asia-Pacific Region with a focus on “Accessing climate change finance and carbon benefits for FLR” is organized on 28-30 September 2022. Following the workshop, as its post-session, AFoCO RETC organized an intensive discussion by inviting 14 AFoCO Member Parties on 5-7 October 2022 in the Forest and Wildlife Training Center in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. The workshop aimed to provide an intensive discussion among the member countries for FLR/REDD+ by learning about Cambodia’s experiences in REDD+ implementation. This publication consolidates the inputs from participants and the outputs of each session.
