The first compilation of national status reports was published in the proceedings of the inception workshop of 2003. The reports in this publication were provided by the National Focal Points of the ITTO project countries during the years 2007-2009, and they capture updates in the conservation and management activities and initiatives in the project countries since the inception workshop of the APFORGEN Programme in 2003.
Information on the conservation and management of forest genetic resources, such as compiled in these two publications, is invaluable to forest practioners, policy makers and researchers in the region. It forms a critical component for the basis for sustainable forest management, which is of imminent concern in the Asia-Pacific region. The present status reports indicate that fairly comprehensive legal and institutional frameworks for the conservation and sustainable management of forest genetic resources are already widely in place in the region, and many of the countries have initiated specific national programmes and strategies related to forest genetic resources.
