With funding from the International Tropical Timber Organisation, "Strengthening National Capacity and Regional Collaboration for Sustainable Use of Forest Genetic Resources in Tropical Asia" worked to develop national and regional capacity to conserve and sustainably use forest genetic resources and share information in tropical Asia.
This project responded to a need expressed by Asia Pacific Association of Forestry Research Institutions (APAFRI) members to increase information exchange and national capacity in rapidly developing scientific and technical areas, such as biodiversity assessment and conservation methodologies.
APFORGEN is a regional programme and network with a holistic approach to the conservation and management of the Forest Genetic Resources (FGR) in the Asia-Pacific region
