Welcome to the Asia-Pacific Forestry Commission
The Asia-Pacific Forestry Commission (APFC) is one of six FAO Regional Forestry Commissions that cover the world's major geographic regions. For more than 60 years, the Asia-Pacific Forestry Commission has served the countries of the region as the largest and most inclusive inter-governmental organization addressing forests and forestry issues and challenges. Since 1950, the Commission’s original membership of 12 countries has grown to 33. In recent times, flagship APFC activities have included the Asia-Pacific Forestry Sector Outlook Study, “In Search of Excellence: Exemplary forest management in Asia and the Pacific", formulation of regional and national forestry codes of practice, and regional cooperation in addressing the threats from forest invasive species.
