ASEAN Senior Officials on Forestry (ASOF) Meeting

NOW HAPPENING: Members of the ASEAN Region convene for this year’s meeting of the ASEAN Senior Officials on Forestry (ASOF)
Represented by FMB Director Lourdes Wagan and FMB Assistant Director Edna Nuestro, ASOF meets annually to formulate and implement regional cooperation activities in support of the following strategic thrusts under the Strategic Plan of Action for ASEAN Cooperation on Food, Agriculture, and Forestry;
  (1) Enhance trade facilitation, economic integration, and market access;
  (2) Increase resilience to climate, natural disasters, and other shocks;
  (3) Strengthen ASEAN joint approaches on international and regional issues affecting the Food, Agriculture, and Forestry (FAF) sector; and
  (4) Promote sustainable forest management.

Despite the ongoing global health crisis, there are also equally important forestry-related concerns that needs to be addressed in the ASEAN Region. These concerns are to be discussed in the said meeting especially in these times when every sector has been affected by this pandemic.
