The Regional Training Centre on Forest Genetic Resources provides training workshops and distance learning opportunities for trainers, policy makers, forest managers and researchers on the conservation and management of forest genetic resources.

“APFORGIS – Filling the knowledge gaps for genetic conservation of priority tree species in Asia” is a regional project aimed at addressing these gaps in knowledge and thereby supporting the conservation and restoration of socio-economically important, native Asian tree species.

"Conserving Rosewood genetic diversity for resilient livelihoods in Greater Mekong" is a regional initiative in which participating countries aim to safeguard the genetic resources of Dalbergia species by enhancing collaboration between forestry authorities and rural communities, and improving capacities.

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.
