The workshop has drawn dozens of professional expertise from government agencies, regional organizations and universities, and used a mix of methods including thematic reports, case studies, in-class discussions and field trips to cover topic issues regarding forest policies, legislations and institutions in the Asia-Pacific region, SFM in Australia and China, bamboo forestry utilization and management and so forth. County reports by participants will also provide a basis for in-depth exchange on good management of forest resources through policy and relevant measures.
