The Global Plan of Action on Forest Genetic Resources (FGR) is a strategic framework for the conservation and sustainable use of genetic resources of trees and other woody plants. It is based on the findings of the first-ever State of the World’s Forest Genetic Resources report, published by FAO in June 2014. The report was developed on the basis of 86 country reports covering 85 percent of the world’s forested area, input from regional consultations and a series of thematic studies developed by experts around the world.
APFORGEN's strategy contributes directly to the implementation of the Global Plan of Action in the Asia-Pacific Region. This report outlines those contributions from 2013 to 2020 and provides insights to the relevance of the research results and capacities emerging from APFORGEN's work.
