The Center for International Forestry Research (CIFOR) is partnering with the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) for one of the largest and most important forestry gatherings in the Asia-Pacific region in 2016.
The third Asia-Pacific Forestry Week (APFW), Growing Our Future seeks to chart new pathways that guide the development of forestry into the future.
In partnership with the Secretariat of the Pacific Community (SPC), CIFOR is leading the ‘Tackling Climate Change: Challenges and Opportunities’ stream – one of five thematic streams at APFW.
The event will be the first opportunity after the Paris climate negotiations to explore how the new climate agenda will impact forest management in the Asia-Pacific region and how regional forest management can support the new agenda.
The thematic streams of APFW 2016 include:
- Pathways to prosperity: future trade and markets
- Tackling climate change: challenges and opportunities
- Serving society: forestry and people
- New institutions, new governance
- Our green future: green investment and growing our natural assets
Streams will comprise a range of workshops, seminars, meetings and other events that will contribute to a broad and inclusive dialogue and outcomes that will help to shape the future of forestry in the Asia-Pacific region.
