APFORGEN Publications

Forest Genetic Resources Conservation and Management. National Consultative Workshops of Seven South and Southeast Asian Countries. Publication Year - 2009

The reports of these national consultative workshops submitted by the NFPs have been compiled into a single volume, both to serve as a record for this project and more importantly as a collective source of updates on the activities of the participating countries during the project duration (February 2006 – January 2009). These reports are certainly valuable references on issues related to forest genetic resources conservation and management for the forest administrators and policy makers in these countries.


Project Completion Report: Strengthening national capacity and regional collaboration for sustainable use of forest genetic resources in tropical Asia

This Project responded to a need expressed by APAFRI members to increase information exchange and national capacity in rapidly developing scientific and technical areas, such as biodiversity assessment and conservation methodologies. The was also a follow-up to a recommendation by the Southeast Asian workshop on forest genetic resources (FGR), held in Thailand in 2001, which specifically recommended that International Plant Genetic Resources Institute (IPGRI) currently known as Bioversity International, in collaboration with APAFRI, should take a leading role in developing a regional programme to strengthen work on conservation and sustainable use of FGR in the region.
