Policy dialogue on social forestry in Southeast Asia: investing in a sustainable future for people and forests in ASEAN

The Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) seeks to promote economic growth, social progress and cultural development. This dialogue will focus on efforts to enhance social forestry – that is, participatory, people-oriented approaches to forestry – to achieve food and livelihood security while addressing climate change.

Come to this side event for a short film presentation and a discussion of some of the key issues confronting ASEAN in its initial steps towards this approach.
