Partner Events and Partner Organizations


Partner events

A key feature of Asia-Pacific Forestry Week is to give forestry and natural resource organizations an opportunity to host their gatherings and discuss their particular topics of interest in the setting of the region's most important forestry event in 2011.

Interested organizations are invited and encouraged to develop their own partner events. This begins with sketching a program and registering the event with the Secretariat, along with arranging resource people and inviting participants. Registration is now open, organisations wishing to host a partner event in conjunction with APFW are urged to complete an online registration for their proposed event by clicking on the following link and entering appropriate information:
