This report, meant for providing value to planners, policy-makers and forestry stakeholders, describes the status, changes and trends of forestry in the Asia and Pacific region. It particularly highlights the contrasting approaches being adopted by countries across the region in addressing the most pressing challenges such as developments in participatory forest management, forest conservation, illegal logging, promotion of sustainable management and institutional restructuring. It also documents recent changes in national forest policies and forestry legislation that address these crucial issues. Finally, it concludes that there are several factors which give rise to cautious optimism over the future of forestry in Asia and the Pacific and these broadly relate to levels of development, information sharing and international cooperation.
