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.

All the National Focal Points of the participating countries had chosen to organize one day consultative workshops which had the participation of the relevant stakeholders. These workshops were organized to achieve the following objectives:

  1. Update and validate the previous recommendations and plans in the FGR national workshop.
  2. Identify problems and other constraints in operationalising a national FGR programme.
  3. Recommend solutions or courses of actions to address FGR issues and concerns.
  4. Solicit inputs in crafting a viable research and development national agenda for FGR conservation and management.
  5. Determine capacity-building activities for a vibrant national FGR programme.
  6. Generate support and commitment from institutions and other stakeholders to implement programmes for FGR conservation and development in their regions.
