Inception Workshop

The APFORGEN inception workshop was held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia at Forest Research Institute Malaysia from 15 - 18 July 2003 with the participation of representative from 12 countries in the region along with representatives from FAO and Danida Forest Seed Centre.  The countries representatives presented the status of forest genetic resources (FGR) conservation and management in their countries.

In addition to documenting the status of national FGR conservation and management activities, the 4 day programme enabled the framework for the operation of APFORGEN to be drawn up and also identified concept notes on various FGR related topics to be developed for potential funding support. The workshop also identified a list of priority species for the region to be used as a guide for collaborative R&D in FGR.
