About the Working Group

The SNRD Asia and the Pacific (SNRD-AP) Forest Working Group aims to encourage knowledge exchange about how to improve forest conservation and sustainable forest management in the region through our GIZ advisory services.

We meet quarterly for a focused thematic exchange in a webinar often involving external speakers and develop knowledge products in line with the needs of participating projects.

Issues / Topics

Thematic focus areas are challenges and lessons learnt in implementing Sustainable Forest Management, Social Forestry, REDD+, forest monitoring (MRV), Forest and Landscape Restoration, and deforestation free supply chains. Digitalization, gender, IPLC rights/social safeguards and carbon markets are also an integral part of this discussion.
